  • The castle and surroundings are very beautiful and road from Amman or Jerash is not so boring. The castle itself is an interesting object to discover.  more »

  • The place for this castle must have been chosen by a wise strategist. Located on a hilltop, in the West it oversees the Jordan Valley from the Dead Sea, all the West Bank, up to the Sea of Galilee. Even the Crusaders did not succeed to capture it. Today it accommodates a small museum and in clear days (most of the year) offers the same impressive landscape view as in the 12th century when it was built as a military fortress.
  • Very interesting place you should visit it
  • One of best places to visit in Jordan, cold in summer, where you can enjoy the wind, an outstanding view where you can see every thing around you
  • There is nothing much in the castle. Just only the view from top where you can see some picturesque valleys.
  • I wonder how it is very cold in summer, how they built it on such a high mountain
