  1. 1. Ajloun Castle<br />
  2. 2. This huge fortress was built by Izz al-Din Usama, a commander and nephew of Salah ad-Din al-Ayyubi (Saladin), in AD 1184-1185. The fortress is considered one of the very few built to protect the country against Crusader attacks from Karak in the south and Bisan in the west. From its situation, the fortress dominated a wide stretch of the northern Jordan Valley, controlled the three main passages that led to it (WadiKufranjah, WadiRajeb and Wadi al-Yabes), and protected the communication routes between south Jordan and Syria. <br />
