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 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.

I don't believe this cite is worth seeing. There are far more interesting things to see and do in Amman.
