Old Kuwaiti pigeon Tower

 This is the first time in my exploring that I found an old Kuwaiti pigeon tower and it was cool. Standing alone surrounded by garbage and piles of sand lies this piece of history. I'm glad I got to take some pictures before it will probably be demolished like most historical buildings and houses in Kuwait.

I couldn't find too much information on Kuwait pigeon towers in English but according to other articles pigeons were once bred and used for sending messages and their droppings used for many different things back in the day, from fertilizer to being used in making ammunition. There are still breeders today and some going for thousands of dollars or you might see the flying rats gathered around water and rice people have left out for them around Kuwait.


  1. Hi,

    This is a nice pigeon tower I have ever seen. Can you tell where is it located, please?

    Many thanks,
