  • of a nice driving from Amman, which can be combined well with other things. The castle is I'm still quite good condition and has a small museum. Everything I'm all pretty well done, and not very overloaded with tourists

  • Car one day Charter, unmcais ruins and the ruins of Jerash and toured together. Carat Al Rabat are the castles of the Crusader era. On the Hill stands alone. Tour time is 1 hour free. Just inside the Castle will be regulated in about 30 minutes. Ajloun tourism too bad is not the main attraction of this castle is so good that not not look at only the Ajloun think? ' all the way to go is a bit spicy. In Jerash to me than anything in the northern part of Jerash is the most magnificent and beautiful, so, if you have time to visit just as good as I think personally. By the way Ajloun Jerash, in motor vehicles one way 30 minutes was from. And Jordan come up around here pretty much will be green. Unlike pettanko Tigers per mountain range overlooking the Castle, was a lush. May 2015 is visit their local taxi story and Jordan is in bloom flowers April is very beautiful is.

  • This Castle is amazing. Why? Well it has the most amazing views you will ever see. It rests on top of the tallest hill so it's a scary drive to reach. At fist I was amazed by the structure, but once I got to the top, the views were breathtaking. When I got there I was able to watch the sunset which made it more spectacular!!!! I stayed up there for 30 minutes, that's how amazing the views were. The sun sets these amazing shades all over the valley. It's also amazing how you are able to see Lebanon, Palestine, and Syria. Overall a must visit.
  • I didn't know anything about this fort. The person I travelled with from Amman wanted to go here so I just followed her lead. To get her you can organise a tour, rent a car or get local buses like we did. It's pretty straight forward. You get a bus from north bus station in Amman to Ajloun. Just ask and the drivers are pretty helpful. It's 45 minutes to Jerash and further hour to Ajloun approx. You would want to leave early as I was told buses from Aljoun back to Jerash stop in early afternoon. From the bus station you can get a taxi up and back or you can walk. We walked. It's quite hill so you may want to taxi it but it's not too bad if you like some exercise. It's around 30-40 minute walk. As I walked up it didn't look that impressive but once I got into it I really enjoyed it. It was cool inside, considering it was very hot outside that was lovely. There is some decent information about the history. Parts of it are in ruins but a good portion of it is well preserved. From the top you get great views of the surrounding valleys and if you have a full day there is some trails dotted about that take a few hours. I spent about 2 hours there which is good amount of time I would highly suggest combining this with Jerash ruins. It makes for a great day out.
  • So much fun, full of culture and history, and excellent views. Only issue is getting there is a bit of a drive
  • Ajloun's My heart, every body in this world, have to see the castle and what ajloun made for long time ago :))
  • I would love to live in Ajloun, very pretty and so much history.
