Ajloun Castle

Ajloun Castle sits atop a high hill near the town of Ajloun in northern Jordan.

Once the Crusaders arrived in the Middle East and started building castles, the Arabs responded, and started building their own. The castle at Ajloun is a 12th century Arab castle known as Qalaat al Rabad, which was an important Arab castle in the battle against the Crusaders.
