In 1812, Ali Pasha Asaad built a new Serail (palace) in al-Burj, Akkar. He was a Mereebi, a dynasty of Ottoman feudal lords in Akkar, a district in northern Lebanon.
The Serail is constructed from white sandstone from Jouma, and is divided into two sections: public and private and has an elegant ablaq gate.
The Serail fell into despair and remains closed today for visitors.
