"Burnt Palace" Burnt Palace Tip by triplehelix
Burnt Palace, Madaba: 3 reviews and 14 photos
The Burnt Palace was a 6th century era mansion which was leveled by a massive earthquake in 749 CE as well as gutted by fire.
While I was there, they were performing maintenance in the building so it was closed for viewing. Apparently this serves as a museum showcasing more mosaics.
The fašade is just breathtaking and leaves you in awe of what Islamic architecture is all about. The minaret juts out into the sky while the rest of the structure gleams bright white.
