Mangroves of Al Thakira

Shot was taken during a photo triporganized by DohaKoottam ദോഹക്കൂട്ടം, our photographic club to Thakira .


Thakira is a small village located a few kilometers to the North of Al Khor town in Qatar. If you are a nature lover, though, it is well worth doing so, as the vista is completely different from much of the rest of Qatar.


Thakira not only rests on the edge of an estuary, it is also home to mangrove swamps. While, because of the extremely high saline content of the sea in this area, the mangroves are not as large as in other countries, they are probably the most established in Qatar.
