Jordan’s desert castles

Jordan Desert Castles - Qasr Kharana

    I have not but I learned something new from your posts. Was not even aware of any of these castles in Jordan. They sure don’t look like our fairy tale version of castles, but interesting for sure.

    The castles, way-stations, or inns (however they might be described), look fascinating. I saw a few in my time in Jordan when I was cycling there. It’s only after spending a few days in the desert, you realise the absolute importance of what at first seem random, isolated places. It also helps to explain the great Arab tradition of hospitality to strangers.

    I haven’t been to any desert castles, but would love to visit Jordan and explore a few. The structures look fascinating and the frescoes look beautiful. Thank you for the suggestions.

    I’ve heard of Petra of course, but none of my friends who have visited Jordan ever mentioned desert castles. They look pretty desolete now, I wonder if it was much different back in the 7th century.
