Karak Castle, also known as the Crusader Fortress, is one of the famous tourist attractions in Jordan. The castle was built in 105 AD by the Romans. It was expanded on this basis during the Crusades in the 12th century to make it strong Fortifications.
The castle has a circumference of 400 meters and is divided into three floors. There are fortifications, underground passages, churches, palaces, bedrooms, kitchens, water cellars, stables and other facilities, which can store a large amount of materials to meet the needs of long-term combat.
Karak is located in the Jordan Valley. The water source is abundant and the land is fertile. It is the only way to go to the coast inland. Our bus was in the Jordan Valley, through the desert and canyons, to the small town of abudis. On the way, I also saw the sacred tree where Jesus used to preach, still standing here, miraculously.
Karak Castle is a fortification built during the Crusades. It consists of large and small stone palaces and numerous passages. It gives the impression that it is more majestic than beautiful, and it is a typical military building. At present, only the city walls are relatively complete on the ground, while the underground buildings are basically intact, including churches, bedrooms, kitchens and even bakery.
To correct it, Karak Castle is not in Amman. We walked south from the market and arrived there after a long time for a drink. It was on the mountain. Last year, I was the first to walk here, so many policemen are patrolling.
According to their website, they will not open until 7 pm. We arrived at 5:40pm and someone told us that they were open until 7pm. But at 6:10 in the evening, the 3 exhibition, and then at 6:15 in the evening, the closed 6 buildings were all turned off by them. We were forced to go at 6:17 pm and we were disappointed. If you want to be at 6, then make your time and 6Closing very close. But don't tell others that you are open until 7, and then let them feel that they are not covered by ClosingDOORS and visit Lights when they are closed! In other words, each room has 6 architectural works of art, a small cafe, and even a library, which is very beautiful (we only saw the 3rd floor because they closed early and we had to go out ). The ground is well maintained and there are many green plants. It's raining. When we went, there were big snails on the ground. The echo of prayer in this place. it is very beautiful.
