  • Here, feedback is mostly pictures of the central mosque, even on the main photo-@alfattaak: until another mosque. I will try to fix it, if I find a how to. And this almost no tourists are coming. She has no inner courtyard, is "working with the song Imam mosque". Go in there, you can only wear long trousers. You need to remove your shoes before entering. Carpets. Nice quiet atmosphere. Pure, calm. Promotes prayer.

  • Also what remains of the medieval old town is a small thing for a traveler, but seeing as you've come to Aqaba might as well take a look. The most interesting thing is the remains of the Church were discovered at the end of the last century. This might be the oldest church in the world, saw that archaeologists date its construction in 300 a.d. The site is always open and you don't pay any ticket.
