Qasr Abu el-Kharaq is in viewing distance of Qasr B'shir. This Iron age watchtower was used by the Moabites, Nabateans and Romans. The inside of the tower is filled with rubble, but the views from the top are great. Quite a few human bones scattered around the tower, probably the result of grave robbers.
