Al-Harrana Palace is one of the most famous desert castles located in the east of Jordan, about 60 km from the capital Amman. The palace is considered one of the examples of Islamic architecture affected by Greek and Byzantine art, and it is believed to have been built before the early eighth century AD.
The internal arrangement of the building does not suggest that it was used for military purposes, and it is most likely that it was for royal holidays, despite its lack of water source, and due to its proximity to the Jordanian capital, the palace occupied the highest ranks among the list of the best and most visited tourist places in Amman Jordan.
It can be said that the Harrana Palace is one of the most important tourism sites in Jordan, and is a favorite for archeology lovers inside and outside the country.
