During the Mameluk rule, Qal'at Ar-Rabad was one of a network of beacons and pigeon posts that allowed messages to be transmitted from Damascus to Cairo in just 12 hours!

Ajlun Castle protected the communication routes between south Jordan and Syria, and was one of a chain of forts, which lit beacons at night to pass signals from the Euphrates as far as Cairo.

The castle is one of the best preserved and most complete examples of medieval Arab-Islamic military architecture.
