This is a very unassuming set of ruins from the outside, but don’t be fooled. It houses the most beautiful set of frescoes that look like they have been newly painted. We arrived and had to have the caretaker open the door to go inside,...More
About an hour or so east of Amman is an incredible outpost. While currently going through a restoration, the stop had baths and a water well. The inside walls tell a story about its history. Would strongly recommend a stop and visit.
Located about an hour's drive eastwards from Amman, Quseir Amra is a former hunting lodge which, while not being large, is certainly worth a visit. The frescos on the walls are detailed and fascinating. We had a guide to explain them to us, which made...More

This is the best among Desert's Castles, because of its very interesting frescos of Omyyad Age. It was a place used for diplomatic and informal meetings, where people could enjoy and rest after the warm and dry desert: so these frescos aren't only religious, but...More
The Jordanian Badia was thriving with life in the past, yet, due to human activity, hunting and over grazing. It lost a lot of its natural heritage. The paintings remind us of this glamorous past. Amra might seem a bit isolated today, but over a...More
