The fort has many beautiful architectural details. I especially like the archways and grilled mashrebiya windows, many of which are ornately carved in wood. The whole complex is reminiscent of crusader castles and gothic architecture in Europe, not surprising since the Knights Templar were heavily influenced by Islamic architectural forms. Posted by Hello
