Qasr Ain es-Sil (Qaser Ain Alssel)

This is a small Umayyad farmhouse with an adjoining bath house, located 1.75km north-east of Al-’Azraq Fort. The excavations of the Department of ِِAntiquities in 1984 suggest that the Qasr was first built in the Umayyad period. It is a small sized palace (4 rooms) built with a bath (hammam). 

The main Qasr is an irregular structure, built of basalt blocks directly on bedrock without foundations. The remains of two olive presses are also found in the Qasr. They indicate the agricultural nature of the site. The cultivation of olives was abviously a common practice at the time.
