Much smaller than I anticipated. Worth a short drive out of Amman if you are living there, but not worth it for tourists. There is too much else to see in Jordan! Some nice carvings of lions and the women's pottery collective nearby is worth...More

This is about a 40 minute drive from Amman, it's a small castle and there are no guides or any information about the site. Not worth a special visit as there isn't much to see, especially after a long drive. Also, there is no entry...More

It took us some efforts to reach this place. Hidden away in a valley outside Amman, you have to rely on GPS, as there is no signs to rely on. The site itself is an interesting piece of history, so worth seeing.
