Falaj Al Mualla Fort

Falaj Al Mualla Fort lies in the town of the same name, in the emirateĀ of Umm Al Quwain in the United Arab Emirates.

The town is an oasis town and its name translates to water channel (falaj) of (al) Mualla. The Falaj Al Mualla Fort was built in the first part of the 19th century by Sheikh Abdullah I bin Rashid Al Mu'alla, who reigned from 1816 till 1853. It served to protect the oasis, together with 3 watch towers. The fort was restored in 2009 and now houses a small museum. I don't have any more historical information about the fort. If you know more; please mail me.

The fort has a square ground plan with 2 round towers on opposite corners and 2 rectangular towers on the other 2 corners.

Falaj Al Mualla Fort can be visited for a small fee. A nice fort.
