The castle has nine towers shaped on different forms circular, rectangle, and square. The castle is surrounded with fruit trees below. The outsider look of the castle leaves you impressed with its big gate and walls and the precautions its builder put in mind through its construction. Because of the strong building of this castle, Saladin spent a long time before he invade it and proud his success in that by the inscriptions on its walls.
Then we dive to Petra (approx.. 30 Min.) for overnight .
After Breakfast, we start the Petra Tour of the second wonder of the world , the rose red city of PETRA , Biblical Name “Sella”, which means the Red Rock , the traditional entry to Petra is through the mile-long winding chasm called the Siq. This is a must-do walk; the extravagant colors of the sandstone walls, and many remains of the Nabatean shrines, water channels, wall carvings and some of the original paving stones make the Siq an archaeological wonder in itself—and then there is the heart-stopping moment when you suddenly reach the end of the canyon and face the towering Treasury, the memorable carved façade of Indiana Jones fame. Around the corner from the Treasury, you’ll see many carvings along the Street of Facades, and in the ancient city center you will want to explore the Theater, Royal Tombs, Colonnaded Street, Byzantine Church, Winged Lion’s Temple, Qasr al Bint, and the Petra Museum, with a collection of the very fine Nabatean pottery, ancient statuary and other artifacts. The religion of the Nabateans led to the creation of temples and cult centers on most of the mountain peaks ringing the Petra city center. Climbs to these high points are rewarding for the archaeology and also for the natural beauty of the colorful sandstone mountains—and rewarding in the magnificent views which many of the peaks command. Places of worship, funerary monuments and other points of interest are particularly popular at ad-Deir (the Monastery). Then walk gradually back to the lower part of Petra , Back to the hotel .
