Title says it all. Impressive historical castle from the Crusades time. Interesting, but I have seen so many around the world that I wouldnt have bothered unless I was driving past (as I was). Worth a visit.

You’d better spend a whole day in this castle if you’d like to discover every crook and ceanny - well preserved in its original state.

If it is on your road, why not stop for a quick visit. Very nice castle in ruins with nice views around. Just disappointing (as per many attractions in Jordan) that there is literally no information available whether it be a brochure or signs within...More

It was a very nice experience to see how a crusader castle was built. The children loved to check a lot of small and dark rooms hoping to find some remains of the ancient residents.
