We combined this visit with our trip to Jerash - we went there first. Is is not on the Jordan Pass but inexpensive to get in. It is lovely and cool inside - it was an OK stop, but would not rave about it, other...More

Visited in December. There was mist and rain hanging in the rain that gave the site haunting yet beautiful appearance. The parts of the fort has been demolished, but the major part of it is still maintained well and is clean. Great place to visit...More

Ajloun is a magical place, sitting high on a hill overlooking Jordan, Israel and Syria. The views are incredible on a clear day. It's not a big castle but is sufficiently well preserved to be a great place to explore. A rabbit warren of stone...More
