  • This was a great stop on the road to Petra. Take some time to explore the ruined castle. Lots of interesting areas and a commanding view of the valley below.  more »

  • It was really nice place to visit. Not as big as the Karak castle bus still it's not bad. There is a secret tunnel but it's closed due to the safety reasons, but we've found another one, with a dead end and we've met a bat there.
  • Nice castle with lovely views. The local guides are very nice and hospitable. Ask them for any information you require and they will give you the whole history of the place
  • With protests going on elsewhere, we were directed to Shobak Castle. It's far from the fortified castle we'd hope to see, so having an excellent view from the site entrance & nothing to speak of within the gutted castle itself, I opted not to struggle to the top but to remain in the comfort of the cafe. One must pick one's battles!
  • Not too much to see.. mostly broken and then there is guy and you need to pay 1JD per person just to see nothing.. If you going petra then don't waste much time here at this place.
  • One of the nicer castle in Jordan. It is very quiet and peacefull. There aren't many tourists and you can feel very intimate there. Highly recommended. Also, it is included with Jordan Pass.
