Qsar Mshatta, or the Winter Palace is located just south of Amman. The site is currently a ruin, and many of the remains are housed at the Pergamon. The site is part of a string of castles which were built by the Umayyads in the 8th century CE. The photos above depict items from Mshatta found in the Berlin Museum.
