The castle of Karak is situated on a hill like most of the castles. Here it is very interesting to see that the town settled around the castle ruins so it seems like the old village of the castle transfered into modern time. You can...More
Karak castle is easily accessible from the King's Highway. The castle has an entry fee, (covered in Jordan pass), but has a good view from the top. Take note of the castle timings as it tends to close earlier than other attractions (around 4PM-5PM).
Like many of the ruins in Jordan, Karak offers amazing views. you can see to the Dead Sea and Amman on a clear day. Really it should be called the Karak Ruins. While the structure is still mostly sound, that is really all it is....More
its a very beautiful place to visit for those who love history, to see this ancient solid castle in the middle of karak town, some part of it still under renovation, it has a very beautiful landscaping view
The castle is visible from far, it is huge and allows a panorama view of the kerak city. The entrance has some nice local hotel that provides arabic food. Entrance fee of JD 2/ head will be charged. It is too hot, so recommend wearing...More
I am glad to have seen this castle, but it did not impress me as an important tourist stop. There are very few interpretive signs, and not outwardly worthy of hiring a guide. It seems better as a local place for people to gather and...More
You don't need much time to enjoy a nice sightseeing in this place. The views are great and although it is a ruin, you can still visit plenty of underground passages, and stairs leading to upper floors.
Went with our driver- Jordan Pass covers the entrance fee.
We also dined at the on site restaurant and was told by the waiter about how he dodged bullets from that attack a while ago. Famous and renowned for well preserved underground alleyways, it is...More

The Mosaic School is a school subsidized by the Jordanian government where locals from poor communities learn how to craft and do mosaic art pieces. The facilities are very simple, but their store is fantastic. Almost a museum of their own with all kinds of mosaic art. They have a little guided tour for visitors to learn how they teach and prepare the pieces and then they guide you to the store where you can see and potentially purchase some pieces. Most of the pieces are not cheap. But above a certain price they ship it to whethever country you would like to for free.
