Desert Castles - Qasr al Azraq, Jordan: 10 reviews and 27 photos


A legacy of the Romans is the great basalt doors, still swinging on their hinges. The main door is one solid slab of stone, and the west tower also has one of these massive portals. In the "Seven Pillars of Wisdom Lawrence described the whole of the west wall trembling as the door there was slammed shut for the night.
