We had a lovely visit to this historical site. From the Jordanian side, it is an easy and close drive from the Dead Sea. We purchased tickets online (at the same time as our Jordan pass, but not included). We didn’t realized that in order...More

Safety is not a problem at all. I have been there twice and I do appreciate that people can have a perception of danger because of its location, but you could not be safer. Everybody is there to witness a past event and nothing else. Just go and enjoy all Jordan has to offer.
