Eighty kilometers northwest of Karbala, in the hot dry desert of Ayn Tamur is set the castle of Sham‘un, which was named after the ruler of the day and age. The castle dates back to an unspecified era of antiquity. Nowadays, visitors will only see the remains of a couple of columns and the main gate of what once was a great and magnificent castle.
