  A ruin of the tower
by Cristian_Uluru
 
 

Another major objective of Salah ad-Din was to develop and control the iron mines of the 'Ajlun. the original core castle had four corner towers, now you can see only the ruins of two of them (in the photos). Arrow slits were incorporated in the thinck wall and it was surrounded by a fosse averaging 16 metres in width and 12-15 metres in depth, that you can see up yp now, under the bridge at the entrance!!!
