The Ajloun fort was strategically positioned on the top of a hill where you could see the enemies approaching from several 100 kilometers away. A lot of restoration work has been done in the past 8 years to give the visitors a better look of...More

We went early morning before crowds. Only one energetic school group of boys with teacher having a hard time controlling them. But courteous. Beautiful places to visit. Enjoyed it tremendously. A beautiful well taken care of place.

Excellent People but gets Heavily Crowded. Try to get there early if possible to avoid crowds. Nice place and medieval castle kept intact.

This castle is bigger than expected from the outside. It's wel preserved and restored while the views from the top and the courtyard of the surrounding hills is very nice. Well worth a stop.

The fort is very well restored and maintained. You need an hour to see, the museum is interesting. So close to Roman ruins.

There are so many world-class destinations in Jordan that something as interesting and well preserved as Aljoun Fort is relegated to a second-tier fill-in. Best to head there before Jerash. We had mid-winter sunny weather so the 360 degree panorama from on top was very...More
