  • Very charming and picturesque from afar... Inside I don't know why I didn't want to go in... but I don't think I've lost anything

  • Travelled from Petra, heading to the Dead Sea, and stopped for a quick view of this castle of the Crusader period. Nice location, on top of a steep hill, but very poor remains of the original fortress...  more »
  • One of the most beautiful attraction in south of Jordan, it's not far from Petra though not well-known, the castle is amazing, the views from the top are breath-taking, if you are lucky you will be able to watch an Ayoubi old-style show. In my opinion the most thrilling adventure in this Castle is the secret tunnel it is very steep very dark and gloomy and absolutely and adventure not to miss if you take the door from the castle it takes you about 10-15 minutes to make all the Descent down to the exit on the other side of the tunnel, that tunnel is usually close during winter so you can only enjoy it in summer and sunny days
  • A large and impressive castle at which I really enjoyed my time visiting. It is an open site - you are largely free to explore anywhere you please. It was fairly free of tourists when I was there. There is parking for maybe 5 cars in front of the castle itself, however I think you are meant to park at the visitor centre and walk the 5 mins up to the castle itself. Parking is free.
