Notes:
 Lookout on a spur overlooking the village of Bher. Appears to be three buildings. About 55m above the wadi floor. Mud brick walls on stone foundations throughout. 5 turrets visible; 1 standing over 6m tall (but badly undercut and in danger of falling soon).

Turret houses (square plan w/ turrets on their corners) are, according to Whitcomb (1988) pp.195–196, Late Islamic.
