Half-day tour of the desert castles in Umayyad from Amman

Variable
Half Day
About this activity

Tour the capital city of Jordan to discover the ancient desert castles. Once you have been picked up from your hotel, you will begin your tour in the Eastern Desert. The renowned castles were built between the 7th and 8th century, under the caliphs of the Umayyad dynasty. The majority of the castles lie on the ancient trade routes towards Medina and Kufa. They may have served as fortresses, or meeting places for Bedouins, or as badiyas, which are the retreats for the nobles, or even used as a caravanserai.

You will get to see Al Kharraneh Castle, Amra Castle (which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage sites), and Al Azraq Castle where Lawrence of Arabia resided and wrote part of his book “Seven Pillars of Wisdom”. After the trip, you will return to Amman, with a whole new vision of beautiful Jordan.
