  • The ruins of the former umayyadische Palace (743 n CHR) are absolutely impressive. The tree of life that is simply wonderful! Often it skips this epoch during visits to Israel - actually too bad. Unfortunately, the conditioning is poorly maintained. One could reasonably satisfactory consider the mosaic of the tree of life only by a lattice window. And on the mosaic were cable and coke cans. Elsewhere in the plant, were two employees on mattresses and apparently made their afternoon NAPs. Only when leaving the system I found that there is still an information film (why not informed you upon entry...). I actually still allowed to look at which (picture and sound quality were informative in itself bad - but the film). Conclusion: a wonderful site - but you really need much understanding for the local staff and their work ethic/attitude. Too bad - it would be this complex on Israeli Territorium-it would be a top site. Because historically, the Palace is really absolutely worth seeing. The restaurant was closed (seems to be no longer in operation). You can buy any drinks. Toilet facilities are available, also a faucet with drinking water. Entrance fee: 10 NIS.

  • Good place to visit, it was one of 5# places we did that many times by bike Where it is one of the most beautiful palaces built by the Umayyads 
  • The introduction movie with the history of discovery and creation at the beginning of the visit of the small museum and the large investment is very pleasant. Interesting trip and a detailed site inspection possible. Very warm it, always a water was...
