Al Jahili Fort, Al Mutawaa، Al Ain, UAE 

Al Jahili Fort is a fort in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. The fort was established in 1891 around the Al Jahili Oasis for the protection of palm farmers. Later it was seized by the former Omani coastal scout for its operation to protect the mountain lanes and to preserve the inter-tribal peace. The fort was mentioned and recorded by several historical figures. Percy Cox, in his tour to Al Ain in 1905, reportedly visited the Al Jahili region. In 1906, John Gordon Lorimer mentioned that the fort was constructed under the rule of Zayed bin Khalifa Al Nahyan.
