Proceed your tour by driving through a beautiful pine-forest and olive groves to visit the Medieval Castle of Ajlun built by the Muslims during the 12th Century in the time of Saladin for defensive. There are two theories for the name of Ajlun either (iron) as there was iron material in the area or because it was built on top of a monastery after the priest name. .
