The cavernous, octagonal prayer hall is capped by a magnificent blue dome 35 meters in diameter, decorated with “Qur’anic” inscriptions. This is the only mosque in Amman that openly welcomes non-Muslim visitors. Free time to pray for those who wish to do so, then proceed with your pilgrimage tour.

The Cave of the Seven Sleepers
Continue for a short drive to the east of Amman, where “Al-Rakim Cave” is located and where the Seven Sleepers stories took place. It is a story of a group of youths who hide inside a cave outside the city of Ephesus around 250 A.D. to escape a religious persecution and emerge 300 years later. The cave was a part of a Byzantine grave yard. The entrance to the cemetery leads to a central hall branching out to three shrines with vaulted arch ceilings. There are seven stone grave yards more in the eastern and western “Alkutin” front door decorated with engineering and plant ornaments. Back to your hotel in Amman where is tour come to an end.
