Salkad

Salkhad (23 km east of Bosra on a surfaced road) has a citadel dating from the time of the Crusades. A circular structure rises above a steep glacis to crown a volcanic hill.

At Al Inat (26 km south-east of Salkhad by track) there is a great reservoir (birkeh) dug out of the rock in 1238 - 1240, as an Arabic inscription informs us. Further out, at Umm Al Qotein, almost on the Syro-Jordanian frontier, there are extensive ruins.

Another track leads from Salkhad south to Anz (13 km) where there are also ancient ruins.
