This fort caught my eye. It's supposedly a Knights Templar stronghold from 1168 AD.
I believe this to be one of the oldest star forts. In Europe we are told that they emerged in the 1500s.
I think this fort, or its original foundations, are much older.

Wiki Lies:

Belvoir Fortress (Hebrew: כוכב הירדן‎, Kochav HaYarden "Star of the Jordan"; Arabic: كوكب الهوا‎, Kawkab al-Hawa"Star of the Wind") is a Crusader fortress in northern Israel, on a hill 20 kilometres (12 mi) south of the Sea of Galilee. Gilbert of Assailly, Grand Master of the Knights Hospitaller, began construction of the castle in 1168. The restored fortress is located in Belvoir National Park. It is the best-preserved Crusader fortress in Israel.
