    They are water tanks. But don't know if they still use it and is it just for veiwing puposes. It has become one of Kuwait's landmarks.

    I bet the view from the top is worth a lot of photos :)

    I love their view at night with the blue lights shining from the bottom. I think they look unusual. Check out the ones on 5th ring road around the Alsideeq area of southren Surra.

    The ones in the photo are the 5th ring road tanks, I will try to cover the rest soon, hoping they are different , slightly,

    My Ministry of Electricity and Water connection tells me that they are fresh water tanks, and yes they are still in use. Apparently the salt water towers look slightly different, and the only one my friend could think of are located in Jahra.

    hala walla q8sultana: Great updates, now we have to discover 2 things; a way to get on top of them and take some photos and find where the salties are.

    Well, I will ask my "wasta" if it would be possible to have like a quided tour or somehting. And if it's even possible to get on top of the towers.
    Apparently all of them are guarded, so don't try climbing over the fence :o)

    I noticed the fence, I was hoping to avoid jumping over it with the help of someone with long arms or very good contacts :)
