The complex at Qasr el-Hallabat began as a Roman frontier fort along the Via Nova Traiana under the emperor Caracalla. There is evidence for pre-Roman activity at the site (Nabatean). By the eighth century the Umayyad caliph Hisham ibn Abd al-Malik ordered that the Roman structures be demolished in order to redevelop the outpost as an Umayyad desert complex.
