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

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

Although it's a little hard to reach the place as it's way out of the main city, but the place is nicely maintained. A very fine masjid with a library is there to offer salah. Place is maintained and visiting timings are controlled. A guide is there who gives the brief in both arabic and English. Much recommended to be... More

The Kahf is well cleaned and you can easily locate it and go there. I wished if they have someone who can describe info about the place there

The cave was locked when we got there but the caretaker came to unlock it after about 10 minutes. He even explained the significance of the cave. It's a must visit religious site if you are in Amman.
