It is made entirely of rock and gypsum. The doors are made of palm trunks. Inside the Alal'a mosque, just outside the Nalut Qasr. It is the oldest of three mosques in Nalut, rebuilt in 1312. The qasr of Nalut was rebuilt in 1240. Qasr of Nalut. Unlike the Qasr Al-Hay, this one is not circular, but more like a very small town with narrow streets. The qasr has 400 chambers. The chambers were used to store dates, wheat, oil and barley.
