Karak - Noah's Ark & King Solomon Shrine

It is said that Noah built his Ark in Karak and

his shrine is in Karak and his tomb is close to the city.

There is also a shrine for Solomon - the Prophet and King of Israel in Karak.

The city of Karak was the ancient capital of Moab.

Thanks for this info, Dhiban! Is "Karak" the same as "Kerak"?
