It’s a shame for any Moslem visited Jordan not to visit this site

As it is mentioned in the holly Quran, this place is best evidence about the story Not far from Amman and easy to reach

The place is great and recently renovated, it is nice to live a spacial religious story from the Holy Quran, but what bothered me is that as women we where given cover-ups to cover our head and body, which I appreciate when visiting a holy place, but the garments are horrible and smelly, they could wash them every once and...

It's ok, could've been much better, but we liked the short trip, the imama knows way more than he says in the short intro, asking him questions is advised to learn and enjoy

For Muslims it is a must see as we all pray Surah Kahf from the Holy Quran every Friday, so to see the actual cave is remarkable experience. The guide is good, nice photo ops so I would say it is worth a trip even on a short visit to Amman PS Contrary to another TA review, the sleepers were... More

Legend has it that the seven early Christians were escaping from the Roman's execution until they found a cave, closed the entrance and slept for two hundred year. When they woke up some two hundred years later, the Roman have adopted Christianity as their religion (Byzantine Era) and... More

Only 20 minute drive from downtown Amman, very interesting place and the on-site guide will give you a quick tour of the cave. Please note the on-site mosques closes at certain times of the day.

I visited Ahl Al Kahf on the first day of my one-week tour in Jordan. I was really looking forward to visit this place as it was mentioned in the Quran (Surah Al-Kahf). I was not dissappointed. The cave was small and there were not many people when I visited. Took a few photos outside and inside the cave. If... More
