Ancient arab port

Mashraba Hill is one of the ancient Arab ports which served as a stopover on the route to Saudi Arabia. It was used between the 1st and 2nd centuries BC. During an excavation in the 1980s, a lighthouse used to guide ships was found in the Gulf of Aqapa, which as also used as a barn and granary for storage. It's open-air, but you can't visit the interior, you can only admire it from the outside.
