Religious historical place of the cave and tombs of the the seven good people who escaped from the bad village people and sleep for 309 years then Allah (God) awaken them. Also the place of their dog at the front of the cave. It worth visiting.

I wouldnt say its a must visit 'tourist' spot. But maybe yes for religious people. Fascinating story behind the cave. I wouldn't deny the fact that it was a different experience. It was a 20 minute drive from downtown Amman.

A significant site, as it is mentioned in the Quran. It doesn't look like it is visited by many tourists (we were alone there), but it is worth the small detour. There's a man (priest ?) there who explains the story, also in English ; he even cells CD's !

The site of Ahl Al Kahf or the Youth of Cave brings to life this famous story. It's well preserved and maintained and easy to visit in Amman city. The graves and bones of them are well shown with the guided tour.

The cave is small and yet, leaving us an historic event when the seven sleepers stayed in the cave for more than three hundred years.

According to legend, the Seven Sleepers were early Christians persecuted by the Romans. They fled and fell aspeep in a cave for 300 years. The story is mentioned in the Koran as an example of Faith in God. The Byzantine ruins have become a shrine imbued with spirituality. I wore a headscarf and the gown provided, as this is a... More

Such a beautiful site and more memorable as we went on a Friday and did our Friday prayers there too! Imagine reciting surah kahfi at the site of ashabul kahfi, its just magical. We recommend this trip to all historical lovers!
