Welcome to Jordan, historical, civilized, peaceful, and religious history land.

Today starts our tour to the Desert Castles in eastern Jordan.

The Amra Castle adorns with its zodiac dome and the early examples of Omayyad fresco paintings, and there are still the fortress-like mysterious Qasr Kharanah and the black basalt Roman/Medieval Islamic fort at Azraq. Close by Azraq Oasis is located. This is an unique wetland through the only permanent source of fresh water in approximately 12,000 square kilometres of desert. Visitors can see here several natural and ancient built pools, a seasonally flooded marshland, and a popular place for bird watching in spring and autumn.
