We stopped off here on our way to a camel trek, which I imagine is how most people get here. It's fine, but definitely not worth it as a standalone attraction. Some interesting architecture, but absolutely no information anywhere!

yes there is an entrance fee. This place is not worth a visit but is surely something different from the other places of interest. If you have extra time you can go there.
