Set on a hilltop overlooking the plains of Manama, Hassa Buweid Castle was built as a fortress by the late Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi.
Built in 1976, Hassa Buweid Castle is a tower-shaped fort in the eastern enclave of Manama. Reached by a stone stairway, Hassa Buweid means ‘white stones’ after the hill that forms its base.
You’ll find it in the village of Naseem, further down the road from main town of Manama, 70 kilometres east of Ajman city via the Al Dhaid Road (E88).
Although the castle is only 40 years old, its architecture is similar to other castles found in across the country.
