Shamamis (Shmeimis) Castle

Syria, south-east Hama.
The sign board says:
The castle is built by Homsi (Emesa) princes in the first century B.C., and then devastated by earthquakes.
In 613, it was again ruined by Arab-Persian wars.
At the period of Islamic rule, it was neglected, until 1229 Ayoubid prince of Homs rebuilt it.
Mongolian tribes ruined it once more in 1260.
Al-Daher Bibros king rebuilt it after Mongolian disaster, and till today it is what left from that era.
ADIYAT association says it is still being ruined by careless people.
