Overall Guide : Not to miss - The Al-Quahira castle is built on a hill, at almost half the height of Jabal Sabir. It is a historical site with a history full of incidents affirms that it has been a battlefield for the... more rulers who ruled the city consecutively during the past ages. Al Quahira castle is the large fortification which is currently being renovated using river stones and original building techniques. Most of the renovations are completed. The castle is on the top of the hill; still it has a swimming pool. On the eastern side, there is a pond which is now used as swimming pool. Rain water is conserved in various places, including a big tank mentioned earlier. Road coming down from the castle is also conserving water, which leads to a water flow behind the theatre and then takes a shape of water fall, finally adding water to the swimming pool.
