Zabala Pool

Zabala Pool is a water pool that dates back to the Abbasid era and is located today in the northern border region of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The pool was a station for supplying water to pilgrims on the road from Iraq to Mecca. The site also includes the ruins of a square castle surrounded by a wall with a circular tower at each corner.
