The second castle on our desert castle tour . Doesn’t disappoint . Just that for a visitor it throws you off to see the officials sitting and smoking hookah !! This is a UNESCO site with frescoes and I hope they do everything to preserve it well . Hunting lodge back then and now it just sits there close to the highway reminding you of the erstwhile Umayyad that once lived and travelled these very same streets.

This UNESCO world heritage palace served as a bathhouse and hunting lodge during the 8th century. Inside, its halls and ceilings are covered with a number of paintings, depicting the lifestyles of Arab princes. The castle is not crowded at all and we had the whole place to ourselves, taking beautiful pictures!

Easy to miss as you drive by, if not for the domes that are eye catching in the desert. This 8th century property was not a castle but served as a hunting lodge and bathhouse. From the visitor center you walk down to the domed sandstone building. There were not many visitors when we visited and we could admire the wonderful frescoes and rooms. The frescoes are well preserved, colourful, interesting and emotive. The representation of the zodiac is apparently the earliest known. Definitely worth the visit.

Incredible monument and academically researched at a high level. Frescoes beautifully preserved of this hunting spa-bath lodge. Mosaic floors of throne niche still intact. Really wonderful and can't say enough. The washrooms tho were a disaster- filthy, unsanitary all over the floor. For a unesco heritage site this needs to be corrected.

believed to be a bathhouse that was part of a much larger walled estate belonging to one of the heads of the Umayyad caliphate. The buildings don't look like much from the outside, but the real treasure is an exquisite collection of early Islamic art, painted on the walls and ceilings in colors that are still bright, 1300 years later. The style of these paintings shares much with the local Byzantine art, and is fascinating in the way it shows how much religious views can change over time.
