Well of Urwah

The Well of Urwah bin Zubair (بئر عروة بن زبير) is believed to be located on a piece of land that he purchased from Khawwat bin Jubair and converted it into a farm and also built a large fort on it. Urwah also had this well dug near the complex to water his land for the purpose of cultivation.
