Step back in time to the Umayyad period with our trip to the three Desert Castles, Kharana, Amra and Azraq. These castles were built between the 7th and 8th century and has been standing testament to the country’s rich history since then. Amra castle is an UNESCO World Heritage Site due its fresco paintings, Islamic art, and architecture. We will end our tour with the Wetland Reserve Azraq, the uniquely precious oasis in this basalt desert.
We will start our tour with a visit to the Desert Castles in eastern Jordan, the beautiful examples of Islamic architecture and art. The Amra Castle is adorned with its zodiac dome and early Umayyad fresco paintings. We will also visit the mysterious fortress, Qasr Kharanah and the black basalt Roman/Medieval Islamic fort at Azraq, near Azraq Oasis. This Oasis is a unique wetland with the only permanent source of fresh water of approximately 12,000 square kilometres of desert. Visitors can see here various natural and ancient built pools, a seasonally flooded marshland, and the reservation place for birds in spring and autumn. Finally, you will be transferred to your hotel or residence in Amman.
