Built atop the ruins of a monastery between 1184 and 1188, Ajloun Castle (Qala’At Ar-Rabad in Arabic) sits on Jabal Auf hill overlooking the countryside in the north of Jordan. Arab general Azz ad-Din Usama, Saladin’s nephew, oversaw its construction in part to protect the region from Crusader expansion and to safeguard iron mines in the nearby hills. The fort was enlarged in 1214 but largely destroyed by Mongols in 1260. It was rebuilt almost immediately, and while earthquakes have twice caused significant damage, ongoing restorations have kept the castle in much the same condition as it stood in the 13th century.

During the Crusades, the hilltop fort was one in a series of beacon and pigeon posts that allowed messages to be transmitted from Damascus to Cairo in a single day. During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the fort served as a garrison for Ottoman troops, and in 1812, when it was “discovered” by Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt, the vasy castle was occupied by a single, 40-member family.

Today Ajloun Castle houses a small museum with artifacts from its long history. Visitors can climb to the top of several towers for sweeping views of the Jordan Valley all the way to the Dead Sea.

Half-Day Private Tour to Jerash from Amman

Half-Day Private Tour to Jerash from Amman

Considered one of both the largest and most well-preserved Roman cities to still exist outside of Italy, Jerash is a marvel of both history and architecture that still draws the eager and curious eyes of tourists every year. With a story of woe and a set of ruins that still inspire awe, it’s certainly a marvel worth seeing. Few in the world can claim to have set foot in a settlement as ancient and full of intrigue as Jerash, the city that’s died over and over, but never really stayed dead. The city even hosts festivals, the most famous of them being the Jerash Festival of Culture and Arts in 1981, proving without a doubt that the city will continue to go strong for many more years to come. I offer private tours to Jerash from Amman (with the option to visit Ajloun Castle) to discover this ancient city and its amazing monuments. Check the itinerary for more details and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
