OverviewUmm Qais apart from being home to unique Roman ruins it also offers far reaching views over the Northern Jordan Valley, the Sea of Galilee, and the Golan Heights. Walk around the Black Stoned ruins and along the Roman roads where you can still see the chariot marks on the limestone. Also visit the Ottoman Governors House which was restored and opened as a museum. Proceed your tour by driving through a beautiful pine-forest and olive groves to visit the Medieval Castle of Ajlun built by the Muslims during the 12th Century in the time of Saladin for defensive. There are two theories for the name of Ajlun either (iron) as there was iron material in the area or because it was built on top of a monastery after the priest name. .
