Al-Karak – crusader jewel in Jordan


The castle of Al-Karak in Jordan – الكرك – الأردن  – is one of the three greatest crusader forts in the region.  Unfortunately right now, the other two are in Syria.  So you can visit this castle, but you’re unlikely to get anywhere near the incredible Krak des Chevaliers any time soon.
