Qataris are passionately committed to upholding their heritage and cultural values while forging one of the most advanced societies in the world. Its ancient history can be glimpsed in carefully preserved heritage sites including forts and prehistoric settlements where rare petroglyphs have been discovered.

In the metamorphosing capital city of Doha itself, the passion for capturing and reviving Qatar’s cultural heritage is felt everywhere – magnificent museums housing priceless artefacts, restored Bedouin souqs, merchant houses, and royal residences, prestigious races and shows purely for Arabian horses, and traditional wooden dhows plying the bay.
