    Don't miss the visit of Jerash and Ajlun during your visit to Amman. There is a bit of a drive but worth the effort. Taxi that has cost 35JOD the round trip Amman - Jerash - Ajlun - Amman with the taxi waiting for us as long as you want to visit. The Ajlun Castle is very well preserved and in this heat a little cool in the shade in the castle is very nice. A very serene place.

    Incredible views. Friendly staff. Met the guy who was restoring the castle and learned about the restoration efforts. It was a relief to not be hassled by souvenir vendors for a change

    Great Ayyoubi Architecture. Occupying one of the highest mounts of Ajloun. You will be amazed when you read that the well built castle was performed in six months, water feed sewage systems where used. You can explore the defensive steps followed there.

    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.
