Prior to occupation by the Crusaders, Kerak Castle was a station for the Archbishop and it held the Nazareth Church.  The castle came under Muslim rule in the year of 1187 A.D. when Saladin sieged Kerak Castle; however, it did not surrender until 1189 A.D. Shortly after the Crusaders were expelled and Kerak came under the Mamluks and Ottomans period. The castle was abandoned after the First World Wa and is now considered a very important cultural site and ruins that should not be missed.

On your return to Amman you will stop for lunch at your own expense.
