Rujm Al Malfuf
Rujm Al Malfuf, in the capital’s north, is one of the largest and best preserved tower complexes in the greater District of Amman, with a diameter of around 22 metres and a preserved height of around 5.5 metres, according to the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities. The round tower and its annex were constructed of large limestone slabs. The tower consisted of several rooms and at least two floors. The precise function of these towers, which are located around 24km outside downtown Amman, is not yet clear, according to the ministy. During the Ammonite period, for example, it is more probable that these towers served as agriculture installations or farmsteads rather than as watch- or signal-towers (Photos by Amjad Ghsoun)
