One of the many places thought to be the place of the seven sleepers. It might be one of the most accurate places due to the place layout and hints mentioned in the holy Qur’an. Unfortunately it closes relatively early. They could extend visiting hours...More

Our tour guide took us here, it wasn't part of our itinerary, and we're so glad he did. It was amazing to see something that has been mentioned in the Quran. A definite must see if you're in Jordan.

This place good place to mark if you visit Jordan. The story of 7 sleepers was mentioned in religious script in Islam and Christian. There are disputes on the exact place. However, according to scholar this place is the closest match with Quran identification.

No charges for entry. Visitors enter the cave in batches. These batches are entertained by a local person who gives a detailed briefing on the historical background. This is free as well.
