"Wind Tower House" Top 5 Page for this destination Doha Local Custom Tip by frankcanfly

Doha Local Customs: 31 reviews and 54 photos


This type of architecture is common within the Gulf region. These towers were historically built to bring cool fresh air into the home before the days of air conditioning.

In the Doha area, there are many 'new' examples of this type of architecture, such as at the Ras Al Nasaa restaurant. This photo is of one of the original ones, located just off Grand Hamad street in Najada Shopping Plaza. It was built in 1935 and restored in 1982.
