About Ayn Jalut Battlefield

This is the very approximate site of the Ayn Jalut Battlefield (also spelt Ain Jalut). The Battle of Ayn Jalut, which was fought on 3 September 1260, is often seen as a pivotal moment in Mongol history. Indeed it was at the Ayn Jalut Battlefield that the Mamluks decisively defeated the Mongols, marking the first time that the Mongols had ever suffered a defeat of this magnitude.

Today, the site of Ayn Jalut Battlefield is just a set of fields. There is nothing to mark the battle site.
