‪Is a nice reconstructed fort‬
אוג׳ 2019
‪Al Qattara Fort, more correctly called Bayt bin Ati Al Darmaki, lies in Al Ain.
It was built to protect the Qattara Oasis, together with Al Wajidi Fort, Al Darmaki Fort and Al Daramikah Tower. The present fort was built in the 1990's when it replaced an original fort of which the ruin had to be removed due to its bad state of preservation. The original fort was situated on a mound overlooking the oasis.
Some 100 meters to the north of this new fort I found a crumbling ruin of what looked like another, smaller fort.
At present both Al Qattara Forts can freely be visited as a guest of the Al Qattara Arts Centre. Inside is a small but very pleasant archaeological museum.‬

‪Traditional Local Architecture‬
משפחה • אוק׳ 2018
‪We visited Al Qattara Arts Center as family with kids. The center has art galleries which exhibit the country's traditional architecture. There are studios for art classes, pottery and calligraphic. The qualities of the crafts and paintings are good.

They are conducting traditional architecture programs and training classes for kids with different types of arts like drawing, water painting, oil painting, photography, paper quilling and crafting. Also, cultural events and arts competitions are held occasionally.

Apart from these, there are no other entertainments like playing area for kids. The quality of the center is not so much as expected.

Finding the location of the center is difficult and it is not easily accessible by public transports. There is an open free parking ground is available, there is no entry fee and one hour is enough to spend here. Friday Market is the other attraction nearby.‬

‪Visited from a Big Bus tour from Abu Dhabi so we did not have a lot of time. Even so we had time to chat with one of the tutors, see the work of students part and present. Met a charming lady who may have been the curator. She showed me around more of the Centre, in particular the studio of the eminent calligrapher Mohammed Mendes. It was his day to teach but he had another engagement unfortunately. It is regrettable that the Centra does not have a shop selling samples of the work done there. Local work is always appreciated by visitors.‬
