The Cave of the Seven Sleepers is a historical and religious site located in Al-Rajib, a village east of Amman (Arabic: Kahf ar-Raqm). Amazingly, the cave's entrance, which is now buried and damaged, faces Mecca and the Qibla in the south. Two pillars with niches surround the entry on either side, a feature of Byzantine architecture. The gateway is framed by a weathered, engraved decorative facade and sculpted pillars; local engravings and sculptures may be seen on the walls outside the Cave. Three sections make up the cave: one that extends immediately north from the entrance; one that branches out to the east on the right; and one that branches off to the west on the left. In the eastern and western halves, eight constructed graves resemble coffins.
Eight smaller tombs that are sealed are located inside the main cave, also known as Ahl Al Kahf (Cave of the People), albeit one of them has a hole in it through which you can see a disturbing collection of human bones. The ruins of two mosques can be found above and below the cave. There is a sizable and slightly neglected Byzantine cemetery around 500 meters west of the cave. The cave is located in the village of Rajib, off the road from Amman to Sabah, to the right of a sizable new mosque complex. The cave contains seven tiny tombs and an unnerving collection of human remains. The caverns were discovered in 1963 as the result of some excavation work. This place has a very Old Byzantine feel to it. View the external cave walls' carvings. Pay attention to the rusted decorative elements, especially the huge pillars. It's believed that a big church once stood in the region in front of the cave. Another noteworthy feature of the cave is the wide variety of objects. The Canaanites, Semites, Akkadians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Byzantines, and Turks were among the artisans who produced these goods. It's a brief but quite interesting visit.
