Winter break, Jordan - Qalat Ar Rabad, Ajloun - 16 December 2007
Castle Qalat Ar Rabad, Ajloun was built by the nephew of Salah Ad Din Al Ayubbi (Saladin), one of the greatest Muslim military commanders, in 1184 AD. The castle is famous as a bastion for Salah Ad Din to protect trade routes between Jordan and Syria, deter the Franks from invading and, became the defensive chain against the Crusaders, who, unsuccessfully spend decades trying to capture the castle and the nearby village. From its height of 1,300 metres, the castle has a commanding view of the surrounding valley.
