"Al-Kharanah: The yard inside the castle" Desert Castles - Qasr al-Kharaneh Tip by MiguelMV

  Me at one of the windows that looks to the yard
by MiguelMV

Most of the rooms have a window or a door to the main yard. This is the place where the inhabitants of the castle used to cook. The way rooms are disposed make experts thing that this castle was not only used for defense, but also for a califal resiednce, specially because of the ornaments in plaster of the inner rooms.
