ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

qasr al-kharanah

Qasr al-Kharanah is a big building in a country called Jordan. It is made out of stones that are put together like a puzzle. A long, long time ago, people used to go there to take rest on their way to other places because it was an important stop on a big trade route.

The building is very old and it looks like a castle because it has towers and walls that might make you feel like a prince or princess. But it is not really a castle because it doesn't have a big king or queen living in it.

Nowadays, people can visit Qasr al-Kharanah and take pictures or learn about its history. It’s like a very big and interesting museum that can make you feel like you're time traveling!
