  • Went there 4 times in one year. It's cool, nice, entry fees not so expensive, a bit of a hike, needs a better parking lot. There should be more informative stuff so that people might learn something. A great view ones you reach the top
  • A Roman Castle designed for defence and protection The castle has an ancient church with mosaic that shows Jesus Fish miracle. Excellent architecture and arches. The main towers have been destroyed. There is a water channel around the castle that is dry. You pass over a wooden bridge to get in.
  • It was an interesting castle to see. It was well maintained. The view was much better than from Amman's Citadel. There is a parking near castle so it's not that hard to get there.
  • Small but impressive castle. It has some explanations and some illuminations. Overall it's worth a visit if you're around and haven't seen to many castles before. It's also cool inside, is you wanna avoid the heat for some minutes. There are two parking lots and one is a little further up. But you might have to get a ticket at the lower one first.
  • Visited while travelling to Jerash. Location is very impressive. We get panoramic view from the castle. It is certainly a well worth visit.
