This castle is one that is easily accessible if you take the 'desert castles' circular drive out of Amman, and is one of the best I think. It is an imposing site with surprises inside like well preserved mosaics. Worth the drive for sure.
It was a interesting place to visit if you do all three castles. Not much on the history overview but worth a quick pop in.
This place is a sort of ancient inn on the way from Damascus to Saudis. We've spent some 45 mins there with a local guide, whom we've hired on the spot for 5 JD, and it was absolutely worth it. Without a guide we would not even get a proper flavor of the place. Please mind, that this is not... 更多
This is one of the "Castles" on the desert castle loop. It's the most scenic and the best preserved of all the structures you'll see on the desert castle loop. Contrary to it's name, it's not really a castle but suggested to be an "Inn". It's the only structure around the largely flat expanse of land and looks imposing. It's... 更多
If you visit one castle, it will give you enough idea about all castles that was built in the Islamic art. All are the same architectures and have the same history.

Do all 3 desert castles just 1hr or so from Amman. You can do them all, there and back in 3-4 hours. Interesting to see. Take a torch to ser them properly. No need for a guide, just gran a cab. Wish we'd done the 7 sleepers cave on the way back too.
This desert castle is gem in the middle of the desert. It is in great condition with almost all rooms intact. While it is very picturesque on the inside, taking a nice shot of the outside is bit more difficult. Not that the castle isn't nice, it is right next to the main highway and a radio transmitter. They very... 更多
you drive for the east of Amman to find Castle in the desert alone and view for nothing there something you cannot describe easy , but worth to visit
