HISTORY

In January 1940, with the discovery of the onshore Dukhan oil field, Qatar joined the Middle East’s oil club. In 1960, Qatar’s first offshore field was discovered. In 1916, Qatar became a British protectorate and Abdullah Al Thani signed a treaty stipulating that he could only cede territory to the British in return for protection from all aggression by sea and support in case of a land attack. Its sole land border is with Saudi Arabia to the south, with the rest of its territory surrounded by the Persian Gulf. What makes Qatar such a beautiful country to visit is the visible history all around which uncovers the struggle and passion to create such a powerful nation. The most popular locations include Al Jemail ‘Ghost’ Town, Barzan Towers, Al Wajba Fort, Al Koot Fort and Al Jassasiya rock carvings.
