It's not all that big, but if you're visiting Jerash this is well worth visiting too. The panoramic views from the old towers alone are worth the trip.

A historical place, where you feel why it was built there once being at the top of the castle to see observation points that monitor everything around. Don't be rush to climb up, there are many stairs, take it easy any enjoy.
This place is well preserved and has information available in English. It's clean, well maintained and has incredible views of the surrounding areas. I strongly recommend it. Take some time to drink the coffee being sold by Beduins at the entrance.

We were close and we got a lot of explanation from our guide but I did not find it spectacular. It takes 15 min to visit it all but you have a nice view on top.
The remains of an old fort with nice views. Small, not very impressive museum on site. Plenty of space to explore inside. Worth a sidetrip if you are going to Jerash.
