This was one of the first desert castles we visited . Considering that it is pretty out there they had quiet a few markings and boards explaining about the place . It was quiet and peaceful to visit . Although not too many details on the walls and everything considering when it was built it is still in good shape .

Qasr-al-Kharrnah was an impressive structure to visit. The castle towers above the desert and is one of the best preserved desert castles, representing an example of early Islamic art and architecture. Best for photography.

The first desert castle we visited. It apparently was never a castle but served as an inn for travelers. A commanding structure from the outside but the inside is in a dilapidated condition. Still it is worth stopping here to explore, since it’s in the desert castle loop. We visited it on our own and reading up before hand is a good idea. Good for photography.

This castle does not disappoint and it was a true shelter from a severe dust and wind storm. It is an Umayyad castle from the 8th century and once inside has been somewhat renovated. The owner of the land on which it stands is in the Bedouin tent next door. Very hospitable and try the chai tea.

We completed the dessert castle tour from Amman visiting three castles during the day. Quite a long drive and not quite sure whether it was actually worth it but it was part of our Jordan tour so did it anyway. Well kept and preserved and of course interesting but you can take it all in within 30 minutes. Described by the guide as probably a historic motel where people met for overnight stays or meetings.
