The watch tower of Sakaka
The Qasr Zaba’al at Sakaka stands on a tall rock spur overlooking the ancient village, the palm groves and the new town. It resembles ruins that can be attributed to the Nabatean area, particularly the well of Bi’r Saysara.
The site also presents an original example of ancient rock carving which can date back to the Neolithic period (8th-5th millennium BCE)
