Stopped here on our way back to Amman. The views are great from the castle. The castle has a lot to see but our time was limited and our guide explained most of the important information. It doesn't take long to view this site and...More
We stopped by at Kerak on our way to Petra. First impressions are the amazing views from the site. Can only imagine the vantage point achieved back when battles were waged. The castle itself has tons of rooms to explore. There is information scattered along...More
If it is on your road, why not stop for a quick visit. Very nice castle in ruins with nice views around.

Kerak and Jerash are in opposite directions from Amman. Kerak is south & Jerash is north. Personally, I would NOT try to see both in the same day, especially if you want to spend time at each site. In my opinon, it would be more logical to combine Kerak with a Dead Sea trip and if you want to spend more time at each, stay in one of the hotels around the Dead Sea. However, suggest you make your reservations in advance.
