Nice to visit

This is quite interesting, I really enjoyed the story behind it and it seems very much historically grounded. I recommend visiting it.

Admission is free, the architecture is amazing, and there's a beautiful garden beside the site. Note that you must wait for the Sheikh to open the door to the cave. You can check out the architecture around it in the meantime.

Ahl Al Kahf is a beautiful proof from God showing the history forgotten in the Holy Quran and Holy Bible. The place is very informative and the staff are very helpful.

I visited Ahl Al Kahf with my family. We came all the way from Salt City to South of Amman where this Moslim Holy Place is located in a place called Al Raqueem. Many Muslims believe this place is connected with the story of the boys who tried to escape and hide in the cave from the hard and bad... More

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
