- n. Plural form of ksar.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
These buildings are called ksars and they are carved out of sandstone – they used to be grain stores but now also serve as hotels.
The old sandstone castles or ksars, which were fortified grain stores, are worth a visit, too - particularly the well-preserved Ksar Soultane, just outside Tatouaine.
