Very interesting complex of ancient water cisterns for collecting rain water, interconnected by tunnels. Very beautiful place. Must See in Kish.

This is one of the few sites to visit on Kish Island, keep your expectations low! I enjoyed being here at it was interesting for me to see the old architecture and the ruins, also nice place to take photos, if you are into photography. TIP: Take your own food and drinks with you, as you can expect to find... More

You can just see some house ruins here! Nothing special, artistic or historic about this place. Don't waste your time and go visit quite peaceful shores in remote places instead.

If you want to see how the buildings in the island looked before the modern constructions visiting this place gives you an idea.

Kish managed to keep this place as old as it was. Structures were golden, obviously made from the sands around the area. It always feels good to be able to see, feel something that you can't comprehend how old it was and how it was built considering ancient civilization doesn't have a lot of tools. A must visit!

Just some old walls, I didn't like it much, it was not even close to what I expected. It is old as they say but they maintained it properly looks like they recently repaired it
