Qala’at ar-Rabad, Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan

Having visited the Crusader castle at Kerak I was keen to also visit an Ayyubid castle that was built to protect against the Crusaders. This wasn't on the original itinerary but my driver contacted his office and we were off to visit Qala’at ar-Rabad (Ajloun Castle). It turned out to be a fairly miserable morning but that just added to the atmosphere and acted as a reminder of what the soldiers would have had to put up with as they guarded against a Crusader attack.
