Leave Amman hotel with your own private leisure vehicle and English-Speaking Driver who doubles up as your guide to visit the Islamic Castle of Ajloun built by the Muslims during the 12th Century in the time of Saladin for defensive purposes during the time of the Crusaders. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and green north fields from its unique towers. There are two theories for the name of Ajloun; either (iron) as there was iron material in the area, or because it was built on top of a monastery after the priest’s name. In all cases, this is a fascinating fortress castle to visit while you are in Amman!
