Excavations at Wadi Kharrar carried out after the 1994 peace treaty found evidence of a complex of churches, hermit cells and other buildings described in the writings of many pilgrims who have visited the site since the 2nd century AD. Now preserved as a tourist destination, Al - Maghtas attracts tourists year - round. Today Al - Maghtas is a beautiful site, full of peace. Along with other religious sites, such as Mukawir, Lot's Cave and Mount Nebo, Al - Maghtas attracts pilgrims from all over the world, just as it has for centuries. Next to the Desert Castles , The eastern desert of Jordan is a dark, inaccessible place, filled with basalt, sand and sky. During the Roman Empire, Emperor Septimius Severus and Diocletian built a network of fortresses, called the fortified border of Arabicus, to protect the eastern border of their new province. While many fell into disrepair, some of them were later restored by the Umayyad, and were strengthened, creating their own settlements in the desert. Each building seems to have had its own role, be it a hunting lodge, a caravanserai, or a meeting room designed to maintain links with the local Bedouins. Hungarian Arabist, Alois Musil, "rediscovered" Kasair Amra and Qasr Tuba, in 1898. Although several ruins are available to the public, three of them, Qasr Harana, Qasayr Amra and Qasr Azraq, are special, due to the restoration of the locality or because of its history. Umayyad castles are a great excuse to visit the eastern desert. Whether used for protection or recreation, they provide an opportunity to look into a world open only to a few lucky ones. The high walls of Haran, the murals of Amr, and the historical associations of Azraq make this journey rich and rewarding. Back to Amman.
