This ancient well is cut into a deep rock. There are 375 steps leading down to the bottom of the well. Visitors can walk down this staircase which leads to a spring. The spring feeds the area and surrounding villages.
In their remote and lavishly decorated desert retreats, princes, caliphs, governors and noblemen indulged in hunting, falconry, racing horses and camels, bathing and eating, and poetry recitals. Most of those palaces were built in the seventh or eighth century.
