ONE-DAY AJLOUN & JERASH TOUR

  • ONE-DAY AJLOUN & JERASH TOUR

Ajloun: a short distance west from Jerash through pine forests and olive groves, lies the town of Ajloun. Jerash: the best-preserved Roman city outside of Italy, with an unbroken chain of human occupation dating back more than 6,500 years.

Ajloun: on an imposing mountain atop Qala’at Al-Rabad (the Castle of Ajloun), a remarkable 12th century castle sits in glorious splendor. It was built in AD 1184 by Izz-el-Din Osama, whose cousin, Salah el-Din, defeated the Crusaders in AD 1189.

Jerash: hidden for centuries in sand before being excavated and restored over the past 70 years, Jerash reveals a fine example of the grand, formal provincial Roman urbanism that is found throughout the Middle East, comprising of paved and colonnaded streets, temples, theatres, public squares and plazas, baths, fountains and city walls pierced by towers and gates.
