A must-see for a trip in Jordan! Lots to see with a spectacular view! Also lots to discover. But you've seen everything quite fast.

A beautiful location in the hills the fort is located at, gets very cold up there. Well preserved part of history. Overlooks a lot of lands from the summit. Takes about half hr to to view it entirely and is about an hr's drive from...More

Spent around 90 minutes at the Ajloun Castle, which is absolutely worth this investment in time, but not more. The most interesting is the history, as often. The castle itself built and rebuilt over centuries nothing special as such, it's fairly small and pretty badly...More

A wonderfully presented site, the fortress of whom we in the west called Saladin. Brilliant views and quite easy to see why this site was chosen for both defensive and communication reasons. A definite visit on any tour

This was our first historical site visit in Jordan. This fort is impressive, be sure to explore it fully as it can seem like a bit of a maze inside. There is a small display of artefacts inside too. Outside at the top, you can...More

Ajloun is one of the most interesting Islamic castles built by Izz al-Deen Usama in 1184. It has stunning views over the Jordan Rift Valley and all the surrounding area.
