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

It was an amazing experience to see the historical site. You can see cave and the skeleton of the sleeper's, who slept more than 300 years.

Having familiarity with the story in the Quran (Surah Al Kahf), it was truly awe-inspiring to visit the Cave of the Seven Sleepers. Further it was quite inspiring to perform Salaahudin in the rather well-maintained Masjid.

From muslims perspective, its a very historical place as the ashab e kehef are mentioned in Quran. You can literally go back to history and imagine what actually happened at that time. Its a small cave inside a mountain, you can see seven graves (though the bones of Ashab e kahaf was taken from their graves and put in one... More

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 !
