"The best Desert Castle" Top 5 Page for this destination Qasr `Amrah by Cristian_Uluru

Qasr `Amrah Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 87 photos

The wonderful Qasr 'Amrah is the second Jordan monument entry in the World Heritage list.
This fantastic castle is very easy to reach from Amman following the road number 40.
Inside the castle you can find one of the best example of Arab paintings made in the 8th century with more than 250 figures over a surface of 350 square metres. Today you can see only the Audience Room and the Hammam of the original castle.

It is an incredible experience to see them in a castle inside the desert!!!!

Enjoy your journey to Qasr 'Amrah

    É un vero gioiello! si`, indubbiamente questo é il piú bello degli altri castelli nel deserto. Forse qualche lavoro di restauro non guasterebbe, ma é molto suggestivo anche cosi`.
