Constructed in the late 18th century to guard the water gateway to the primary island of Abu Dhabi, the Al Maqta watchtower is one of the treasured remnants of ancient Abu Dhabi.  The contrast with the beautiful Sheikh Zayad bridge provides one of the best illustrations of how far Abu Dhabi has progressed in a very brief period of time.  The bridge, designed by Zaha Hadid, was constructed in 2010 at a cost of more than $400 million.  Unfortunately, photographs of critical infrastructure such as this are generally forbidden by the Abu Dhabi government today for security reasons.
