Syria. Najm Castle At Euphrates Banks.

Not far from Aleppo, to north-east by around 100km, an ancient citadel-castle stands for its beauty to compete with the not less majestic waters of Euphrates.
Since the Hamdani dynasty who ruled Aleppo in 900-ies, it became famous as a stronghold for the king then.
The castle is 95m long and 64m wide, and at 27m attitude from Euphrates now (it was 68m before) due to building of a dam nearby south to it.
