The ruins of Rujm Al-Malfouf.

Rujm Al-Malfouf is one of a series of watchtowers from the Ammonite kingdom[1] in modern day Amman, Jordan. Its name can be directly translated as the Twisted Stone, which derives from its circular shape. Built in the first half of the first millennium BCE,[1] the watchtower is located on Jabal Amman. Rujm Al-Malfouf is next to the Jordanian Ministry of Antiquities.[2]
