  • The castle is near the Arab Revolt flagpole. Unfortunately, we had no clue how to enter the place. It seemed shut. There's not much to see from outside, but you can take a quick stroll around it while...  more »

  • It's a mumlok and ottoman castle , small but nice one, now its closed , its under restoration, its will be open in the beginning of April
  • You'll arrive at the entrance of a mini museum where you will buy a ticket for 2 JD. It's small, but has good information. Exiting the museum, you'll head up the street for the entrance to the Castle, dating as far back as 14th C. Though it is currently under construction in honor of the centennial of the Arab Revolt (and because a team did shoddy work of it in the 1960s), you'll still be welcome to walk through the wooden gates and into a different time period. Talk to the men restoring the castle. They will tell you what they've found that day or if National Geographic was there the day before to film a documentary. If you're lucky, you might be able to see some of the bullet shells they've recovered. Definitely read up on the castle before you go as there are no placards inside the castle itself. Interesting to note: the Aqaba Flagpole (that is so big they can probably see it from space) is not the Jordanian flag, but the Arab Revolt flag. It flies over the castle in memory.
