Nice mosaics. A big part was closed and we got the idea that with a guide we could see everything. After the visit we were invited to a mosaicshop where we could see how you make mosaics.

Great place to wander around - the mosaics are amazing. Although there were quite a few people around it seemed like a very peaceful and relaxing place to soak up some history.

As is the case in many parts of Jordan this place clearly suffers from a lack of investment. There's some nice mosaics and an old road but not a lot to retain your interest for more than half an hour really.
