  • Ajlun Castle, a great example of Islamic military architecture built during the Crusades, is an interesting maze of passages and levels, and offers a wonderful view of the surrounding area, northwestern Jordan, and off into Galilee.
  • Umm Qais, another Hellenic-Roman site (significantly smaller and less well-preserved than Jerash), but with a beautiful view of the Golan Heights and Lake Tiberias (Sea of Galilee). In Spring, wild-flowers cover the site in a splash of color.
