  • For those who love history and archeology of the East. Interesting Castle for Amman. Go not far, but a little tiring on the sand and heat. However, the spring easier. But cons roads overlap themselves. It is worth to see it not only outside but inside is shearing benefit possibilities allow. Several unusual architecture. Honestly, you can visit several times, he captivates fans.

  • Visited on the 8th October 1980 whilst travelling overland in my Landrover from the Sultanate of Oman to the UK accompanied by girlfriend Dawn Havey. Qasr Kharana very remote but in remarkable condition, built circa AD 711.
