This is not really a castle or a fort, but rather a humble farmhouse built by the Umayyads, possibly over the existing fortifications of a Roman building. Rather small (17 sq metres) and built from simple basalt brick, there are ruins here of a courtyard (flanked by seven rooms), equipment for making bread and olive oil, and some baths. It is located just off the main road through Azraq ash-Shomali (North Azraq), and about 2km from Qasr al-Azraq.
