Historical place

The cave is small and yet, leaving us an historic event when the seven sleepers stayed in the cave for more than three hundred years.

According to legend, the Seven Sleepers were early Christians persecuted by the Romans. They fled and fell aspeep in a cave for 300 years. The story is mentioned in the Koran as an example of Faith in God. The Byzantine ruins have become a shrine imbued with spirituality. I wore a headscarf and the gown provided, as this is a... More

Such a beautiful site and more memorable as we went on a Friday and did our Friday prayers there too! Imagine reciting surah kahfi at the site of ashabul kahfi, its just magical. We recommend this trip to all historical lovers!

Very nice tour for everyone, especially for Muslims, where you see the cave as described in Holy Quran. Opening hours from 9:00 am to 6:00 PM; but I recommend not to go on Fri., as they close the cave before the pray, and it's very crowded after the pray. 30 minutes would be fine for the visit, taking photos, and...

It is about a 45 minute drive from Amman, and along the way, you will pass under the Hejaz railway track. There is also a mosque there which is... More

This is the place mentioned in the Holy Qur'an as the 'cave of the believers' who were persecuted and then took refuge in the cave. It is somewhere all religious pilgrims should visit, for surely it is one of the miracles of the Almighty.

contact Khalid at +962 795938938. He was our driver throughout our 3 day trip and he took us here on our first day. If you want you can say your prayers at a small mosque at the top of the caves and then proceed to the caves with the local sheikhs. The sheikhs are two brothers, and they can both... More

I believe this is the cave where seven men slept for 309 years as mentioned in Al Quran surah Al Kahf. It's great religious place to visit for moslems. It has a nice mosque next to this place, so moslems can do the salat.

It is not certain that this cave it is the real cave of the Seven Sleepers but if you come here, you learn many interesting things; the guide showed us many inscriptions and we could see inside of one tomb.

Ahl Al Kahf is a small nice religious place. Once you're there, you can have a nice feeling because of that peaceful amotsphere. It can concern just people who are interested in religion.
