Highlights

Tour Egypt Travel® invites you to visit several Islamic medieval desert castles that offer a number of fortresses with fresco art and zodiac dome in Jordan. Book our desert tour today and enjoy the Sassanid style castles and fortresses in the desert of Jordan!

Tour Itinerary

Tour Egypt Travel® representative will pick you up from your hotel in Amman, then head to the eastern Jordanian desert to see three examples of the Desert Castles, built by the Umayyad caliphs in the 7th and 8th century. Qasr Kharana (also Kharanah) is your first station supposed to be built before early 8th Century and considered to be one of the earliest examples of Islamic architecture in the region. There is no clear purpose behind building this castle of the 35 square meters area and Sassanid building techniques were applied. Then we head to Qasr Amra which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its unique fresco paintings representing an early stage of Islamic art. Last visit will be to Qasr Azraq, used already by the Romans, but most popular occupant had been T. E Lawrence of Arabia, who had here his headquarter during the Arab Revolt. The reason why it is called Qasr Azraq (Blue Fortress) is the nearby oasis that is considered the main source of water in this desert region. After visiting these beautiful castles, our driver will take you back to your hotel in Amman.
