  • I loved every place we went to in Wadi Rum. But we could've skipped this one to save time for others. It's not disappointing, but it wasn't better than some of the other sites.  more »
  • Wadi Rum is well known from Lawrence of Arabia, a film depicting the life of the British Soldier T.E. Lawrence, who spent time in Wadi Rum while serving the rebel forces during the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Turks between 1916 and 1918. In his book, the Seven Pillars of Wisdom, he describes the spring and it is the spot where his troops watered their camels before the attack on Aqaba Fort. Some rock ruins are thought to be from Lawrence’s House and, although there is no certainty in this, the ruins are a must see on the Wadi Rum circuit.
  • some old stones - not much to see, so not worth a detour if you are not passing by...
