Quranic Inscriptions (Kufic Script), the Mameluk Watch Tower, Shobak Castle, Jordan.

The towers and walls are decorated with carved inscriptions dating from 14th century Mameluke renovations, but the inside is ruinous.

 

Head to the northeastern corner of the castle to see Quranic inscriptions, possibly dating from the time of Saladin, carved in Kufic script around the outside of the keep.
