When Shaikh Mubarak Al-Sabah held the Governance in Kuwait, he founded the Customs Department in 1899 and charged on all incoming goods through sea and land ports of Kuwait.He used AlSanqar (the remains of the main gate of the second wall, which is where chiefdom related matters took place until the reign of Shaikh Mubarak) as an office to control the camel caravans taxes.The need for a main control point then came to surface. It was then when Shaikh Mubarak decided to build two pavilions (North and South) that were used each in relation to the sunrise and sunset. The southern Kiosk* was a council of Shaikh Mubarak in the morning; the northern kiosk was used in the afternoon. The origin of word Kiosk (Spelled Kushk in Arabic) is Turkish and Persian which means“Nakhban: guard.
