Doha is the capital city of Qatar. In 1825, the city was founded under the name Al-Bida. The name “Doha” is derived from the Arabic ad-dawha, “the big tree.” The reference is to a prominent tree that must have stood at the site where the original fishing village arose, on the Eastern coast of the Qatar peninsula. Doha has an estimated urban population of 998,000 and an estimated population of 1.7 million living in its metropolitan area. This photo of the Doha skyline has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 16th of January 2010.
