Qasr - Jordan

Amman


The desert castles (Qasr), were built in VIIth and VIIth century. For their pleasure, Omeyyade princes built in the Jordanian steppe luxurious residences decorated with mosaics, frescos and stuccos. These buildings were initially interpreted like shelters, built by the caliphs eager to leave the city for the desert.
