Thanks for comments. I guess it is a strongpoint, a gate among others in a wall that has been surrounding the ancient town of Zabid. It used to be a kingdom or so some 700 years ago and was also recognized as a center of islam and the arabs. There are plenty of remnants from old time in Zabid and it has been declared a World Heritage by the UNICEF.
