It may not be easy to get to but it is well worth the trip. Take a taxi. It is a delightful example of Muslim architecture and stands out in this monochromatic city. After taking many photos walk to the sweet shop on the corner and gorge on delicious local treats. Bring home a tin of them for your friends.

Our guide arranged for us to visit inside the mosque and we had an opportunity to talk to the sheikh with our guide acting as an interpreter. I believe they are more willing to do so to allay fears and misunderstanding as a result of ISIS which has created tourist scares throughout the Middle East. The sheikh was very gracious... More

Abo darwish mosque is eye catching even from the citadel and up close, it is stunning. It is difficult to get up there and you risk being caught in traffic for which there is no way out but waiting for it to move. Therefore taxis will be reluctant to go up there but it is worth the trip.

The mosque is unique with black and white painting on its walls. It's located on the hill side, where you can watch the city from here. I came there on Friday (after Jumah pray) and the door is locked. it's too bad, I could not see how it is inside.

As I live in Amman I was going often to this mosque to watch sunset. Walk up the hill is nice way to explore the neighborhood and meet nice and friendly people.

Beautiful Mosque. We went inside but it was during prayer time so we could only go upstairs to view the prayer area from above. Lovely well kept building.

Great mosque to visit. Great view . The black and white stone make the mosque look really beautiful. There is a desert place opposite that you must try too.

Everyone must remove their shoes to enter and women must cover their hair and bodies. A shop below the mosque allows you to borrow robes to do just that. I think it is worth it to be able to see the inside. There are two buildings, one for everyone and one just for women, and I think women should go... More
