Wheelchair access provided to the mosque however wheel chair won't reach the caves. May be they can see the mouth of the cave from wheel chair..

For me this was a very interesting visit especially since the Quran story is brought to life. Pity that some of the inscriptions have been damaged. But the area is well maintained and secured. The new mosque and gardens are very beautiful.

Stopped here on my tour south to Petra. Not crowded and the history behind this spot was fascinating. Stop and visit if time allows.

The place worth to visit, no doubt, a gentleman frequently comes to open the door of the case and deliver a short description about the cave, Cds sold that have information about the place and the history. Modern Masjed around with modern facility

Remarkable place set on the grounds of a beautiful mosque. There is a guide who gives the background of the seven sleepers which is very informative. Roman and Islamic influences abound.

There is so much history in this place that you have to see for yourself. One word of advise, read about the seven sleepers first before going, dress conservative since it's located within the grounds of a masque and ask questions of the guide inside the cave. He will not charge you a single dinar/dollar.

The Cave of Sleepers is a must visit place in the outskirts of Amman city. It's a very serine place. Parking place as well as guided tour facilities are available. The small garden around the cave is beautiful and contains some of the most spectacular rose bushes that I saw in the area. The tradition of sleepers (Ashab al Kahf)... More

Ahl al Kahf is a beautiful place to visit, especially due to its religious significance of being the cave of the seven sleepers as mentioned in the Quran. To be in the same cave and surroundings is a truly magical and spiritual experience. Although it had been raining we were given entry and able to access the cave with a... More

Driving to this place was a bit tricky. But you just have to trust the GPS. We were expecting a big cave and steps to climb to the entrance. It's rather small instead... The way to the entrance is shared with a mosque. Free admission (8am-5pm). This is a historical, sacred burial site so dress appropriately. Story that is shared... More
