Strategically located as a sea passage, Arad fort is a classic example of Omani military architecture from the end of the 15th to the early 16th centuries. Although it is not clear when it was constructed, this fort was once the site of fierce battles, playing a major role in the defense of Bahrain against marauders through the centuries. Restored in the 1980s using only authentic material, the fort is beautifully illuminated at night and hosts seasonal festivals throughout the year.
