Hili Oasis

If you drive out from Al Ain towards Dubai, you’ll see this fort on your right…

It says: “It says that this tower was re-built by the Department of Antiquities and Tourism on top of ruins of an old tower that once protected the oasis. The ruins had to be removed due to its bad state of preservation, and replaced with the existing tower. Although stones are used in the foundations, mudbricks and clay are the main construction materials used.”
