Known as The Pigeon Towers, the intricate design of these structures date back thousands of years and mirror traditional Islamic architecture and creativity.
Standing tall, near the Katara Mosque, the mesmerizing Pigeon Towers complement Katara's ideology of merging the grace of the past with the splendor of the future.

They have been designed to collect pigeon droppings, which make up fertilizer for local farms.
