Ayla is a historical site with the ruins of the first Islamic city outside the Arabian Peninsula in Aqaba. The remains of the city were excavated around 1989. Archaeologists have discovered fortified stone walls with a length of 165 m and some being as high as 3 m.
The ancient enclosed city was constructed according to Islamic settlement structures called Msir. It was surrounded by 24 towers and divided into 4 sections through two main streets running in the centre. Ruins of a mosque, which was added to the city plan after 748, have been the latest unearthing. Ayla was established around 636 AD. It served as a pilgrim station initially and then as a fishing and commercial centre during Ottoman rule.
