009- Ottoman Period
Built in the 16th century by the Ottomans, the Dab’a Fort is one of the oldest forts along the pilgrimage road in Jordan. The fort is a square, two-story building with rooms arranged around a central courtyard. It is surrounded by walls with arrow slits and square corner towers. The adjacent water reservoir (recently covered) is supplied by flood water through a small settling tank that collects the sediments.
