Karak is a small town located to the south of Amman, famous for its dramatically situated Crusador Castle. The Crusader Castle lies within the fortified part of the city, and is a popular attraction. Legend has it that the castle was where the battle between the Crusaders and the Islamic armies of Saladin took place. A visit to the Crusader castles makes an interesting detour on the Amman-Petra route.
