  Umayyad Palace
by Cristian_Uluru

Near the Byzantine Church there is the most impressive building of the Citadel, known simply as al-Qasr, the Palace, dates back to the Islamic Umayyad period. Its exact function is unclear, but it includes a monumental gateway, an audience hall and four vaulted chambers. A colonnaded street also runs through the complex. To the north and northeast are the ruins of Umayyad palace grounds.
