Pigeon Tower at Katara

The Pigeon Towers at Katara Cultural Village are a small example of the traditional islamic architecture and one of the most photographed structures in Katara. Traditionally, the pigeons were domesticated not for their meat (pigeon is especially revered in Islam), but rather for their droppings, which the locals collected and used as fertiliser.
