The towers were used to monitor ships and guard access to the well of Ain Hleetan, the main water source that sustained life in Al Khor. The three towers along the coastline are cylindrical in shape, with thick stone walls and an accessible balcony to guard the port city, an important center for fishing and pearling in the early 20th century.
