جَوْسَقٌ

i. q. قَصْرٌ [A palace: or a pavilion, or kind of building wholly or for the most. part isolated, sometimes on the top of a larger building, i. e., a belvedere, and sometimes projecting from a larger building, and generally consisting of one room if forming a part of a larger building]: (Ṣ, Ḳ, and Ḥam p. 823:) or a fortress; syn. حِصْنٌ: (M, IB, TA:) or [a building] resembling a حِصْن: (M:) an arabicized word, (Lth, JK, Ṣ, M,) from the Persian كُوشْك: (TA:) its primary meaning is a حِصْن in a state of demolition; and a ruined قَصْر: pl. جَوَاسِقُ and جَوَاسِيقُ; the latter formed by giving fulness of sound to the kesreh, or by poetic license. (Ḥam ubi suprà.) There were, in the Karáfeh, [the great burial-ground of the Egyptian metropolis,] numerous قُصُور, i. e., what are called جواسق, having belvederes (مَنَاظِر) and gardens: but most of the جواسق were without gardens and without a well; being lofty belvederes: all of them were called قُصُور. (El-Makreezee's “ Khitat, ” ii. 453.)
