My family of 4 visited the Ajlun castle and took an official one hour guided tour of the same in English. Better perception of deep history is achieved by doing a guided tour of this castle. The castle is strategically located on the top of...More

Castle is in good condition with many intact rooms to explore. Rooms are mostly empty so although castle is in good condition there’s not a huge amount to see. Entry is included with Jordan Pass.

When visiting Jordan, it is interesting to include 2 castles in the tour: Jerash - built by the Crusaders - and Ajlun built by a general in the army of Saladin. We were lucky to visit it almost by ourselves. There are a few explanations...More

If you are visiting Jerash it is well worth extending your trip to see this castle. As this castle was built by muslims it has a different feel to the crusader castles in this area. The drive to the castle was itself interesting with views...More

First of all, the views are amazing. The drive up was equally gorgeous. We had so much fun wandering in this centuries old castle. The only draw back was there were people smoking inside and it seemed to get trapped in the rooms. There was...More

Whilst Ajlun Castle doesn't seem to be a destination in its own right, it certainly makes a good interesting stop if you are heading north to Umm Qais. Allow about 1-2 hours for the visit & don't worry if its extremely hot as the castle...More

The castle was apparently built by Muslims to half the crusaders. It is visibly injured, but much remain of it still. While there are nice interiors and the most is made of it, it is nothing amazing. The views around are nice though and the...More

A great piece of history with a view of northern Jordan--from the early church to the fortress and the reconstruction of much of the roof areas.
