Karak Castle

The town of Kerak lies east of the Dead Sea, marking roughly the halfway point through the king's highway. Its crusader castle, the largest in the kingdom, was built for military purposes, and as such is not covered with decorative frills, and is a pure example of architectural and military traditions of that time. Its galleries, towers, chapels and ramparts still echo with the resolve of the Crusaders who built them almost a thousand years ago.
