This is a classic fortress that's being renovated (almost done). It's also nicely cool inside. Very interesting to read how inhabitants used to live in there. Very accessible and you're being rewarded with a spectacular view form the roof. Try to be there bot too long before sunset!

This was on our tour trip to Jerash. Lovely castle . This was an easy place for a self guided tour. Nice signs everywhere and very peaceful.

Ajlouni Castle is really an imposing and amazing place to explore. It sits high on a hill (just like every fortress/castle seems to), and it is extremely well preserved. The inside of the castle is beautifully lit and inspires you to take lots of photos. It will take you around an hour to really explore this place as it is pretty huge with lots of little nooks and crannies to check out. The view from the top of the castle is breathtaking and allows to see for miles. According to one of the signs, when they lit their signal fires the torches could be seen as far away as the Nile Delta in Egypt. Pretty impressive. When we were there the weather wasn’t all that clear as a massive dust storm was on the way...so we had no chance of seeing as far as Egypt...so we just took their word for it. Due to the Corona Flu panic, when we visited there were very few tourists so we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves....it was awesome. Try to get there early to avoid the worst of the tour group traffic. One tip we got when we were there was that not far from Ajloun Castle is the reported birthplace of the Prophet Elijah, so we when for a visit. There are ruins of 3 old churches on the site but there isn’t a lot to see. The castle, however, is definitely worth seeing!

We stopped at Ajloun castle as part of a day tour - it’s a lovely place, no guide really needed and you can cover the place in an hour. Views from the roof are spectacular as they are 360 degree panoramic.

Wonderful sight near Amman. One of the very few Muslim Castles, it was built to protect their realm against Crusader incursions. It has the view of 3 Wadi(Valleys), Wadi Kufranjah, Wadi Rajeb and Wadi al-Yabis. It's short self guided tour and you can stay as long as you would like. There are steps to climb but the view from atop is amazing as it looks outward to the valleys.
