    Tower and ruins of the mosque


Tower built by the Mamluks in the 14th century, forming part of a complex together with a mosque, original from the 8th century and rebuilt by Saladin in the 12th century. Muslim tradition states that 40 companions of the Prophet were buried in this place.

It apparently served as a watchtower, as even today its top offers a panoramic view of the entire area, from the Mediterranean coast in the west (including Tel Aviv) to the foothills of the Judean and Samaria mountains in the east.
