Trail 2: Jebel Qala'a

Trail 2: Jebel Qala'a

North from Al-Ain Plaza, left from Daoud Building on the corner of Hammam Street is the access to the Haddadin Stairs that climb up to Al-Qala'a lookout. This vantage point overlooking the city towards the south is on the upper street level that surrounds the hill, still below the peak towered by a white mosque.

The trail passes two city landmarks: the English Complex, with Anglican Church and Hospital, and the historical Qaqish House, headquarters of the As-Salt City Development Project, behind which descend the stairs reaching Al-Khader Street to continue uphill to the Orthodox Church of the Dormition of Virgin Mary, and the Al Khader Church, where Christians and Muslims pray together.

The informative photo tours recommend routes to explore As-Salt's culture and heritage.
