Fodor's Review

The function of these three large structures is unclear; they may have been connected to Nabatean worship, perhaps symbolizing one of their deities. In Arabic, djinn refers to malevolent spirits, a common theme in Arab folklore. You may recognize them by their anglicized name, "genies."
