  The lion: the symbol of Qasr Iraq al-Amir
by Cristian_Uluru

The castle is very nice. The first thing that you can notice when you arrive here is his big stones: the biggest of all the buildings of the Middle East!!!!!
The biggest stone is 7 metres for 3 metres. But these stones have a shim of only 20 centimetres!!! For this reason the building was very fragile and in the 362 AD an earthquake destroyed it.

Address: Iraq al-Amir
Directions: When you arrive to the Eighth Circle foolow the sign Iraq al-Amir.
