Sadd Qasr Al-Bint Dam – Khaybar

Sadd Qasr Al-Bint Dam on the outskirts of Khaybar is believed to have Nabatean origins and is 135 metres long and 20 metres high. Khaybar was an important caravan stopping place for many centuries with the centre developed around a series of ancient dams that were built to hold back run-off water from the rain. Around the water catchments date palms grew, and Khaybar soon became an important date producing centre.
