5 Must-Visit Ruins In Jordan Country

Must visit ruins in Jordan travel history destination styleprism


There's something magical about ruins.

History has seeped in through each crevice and each crumbling stone tells a hundred enchanting stories about the past. 

I've always been fascinated by the beauty of those broken buildings that emit as much grandeur in their crumbling state as they used to do back in their day. Exploring ruins, touching those history-steeped surfaces, knowing more about the people who inhabited those walls when they were standing tall fills me with a sense of awe that very few things can.

So, when I went to Jordan (few years back), I was ecstatic to experience some of the most magnificent ruins all over the country! The ruins in Jordan vary in architecture & culture - from the Roman amphitheatres of Jerash to the rock-cut ruins of Petra built by the Bedouins to the holy Christian ruins at Mt. Nebo; there's a wide variety of history-rich monuments to explore and get mesmerized by. And so I thought, that these magnificent ruins deserve a separate post for my fellow travel enthusiasts & ruin-lovers out there.


1. Roman Ruins at Jerash

One of the most popular tourist attractions in Jordan, the Greco-Roman ruins in Jerash are sprawled over a wide area that can be explored by foot over 3-4 hours. The imposing Hadrian's Arch or Triumphal Arch, built AD 129, will welcome you into the ruin complex if you enter from the southern end. The central attraction of the site is the forum which is oblong in shape, with the paved limestone plaza surrounded by 56 Ionic columns that make for great photo-ops.

At one end of the forum lie the ruins of the Temple of Zeus which can be reached after a climb. Next to it is the fascinating & huge South Theatre - a Roman amphitheatre built to sit upto 5000 spectators at once! The acoustics are still impressive which goes to show the level of science that went behind these historical architecture, and the same is proved random tourists breaking out into a song at the podium or traveling musicians who might come by.

The main thoroughfare of the old city runs on one side. It is a colonnaded street that still flaunts the original paved stones over which chariots used to run back in the day. There's also a small museum which showcases the history of Jerash and has an impressive collection of old artefacts from the site.


Tickets: 8 JD or free entry if you have the Jordan Pass

Guides: You can get good guides at around 20-25 JD near the ticket counter



2. Ancient Ruins of Petra

When one says 'Jordan', the first thing that comes to mind is the famous rose-hued archaeological ruins of Petra. Built more than 2000 years ago by the Nabateans, the ruins at Petra are not only a World Heritage Site, but also included in the list of the New Wonders Of The World!

The 'Lost City of Petra' can be accessed from a 2-km pathway through narrow canyons, and the walk itself is nothing less than an adventure! The cliffs flanking the narrow path are towering chunks of sandstone that turn pink & red with the changing sunlight as the day progresses. There are horse-drawn carriages that take visitors from the main gate to the ruins for a fee, but try to walk it if you are not old or ailing. The best part is when the canyons open up to reveal the majestic ruins of The Treasury carved into the sandstone rockface in all its historic glory!

Carved directly into the sandstone mountains, the buildings in this complex are awe-inspiring & regal in a rustic way. The architecture is Nabatean & Greco-Roman in style and most of the monuments that stand tall till today are ancient tombs, already looted of their treasure by thieves in the past. Now, the entire heritage site is home to the Bedouin tribesmen & women who work as local guides, sell souvenirs, and enthrall tourists with stories of their culture & history.

We even indulged in the thrilling experience of hiking up to the cliffs for a bird's eye view of Al Khazneh (The Treasury) and it was one of our best memories from the trip. We hadn't originally planned to do the hike, hence we had to spend 4 hours climbing & trekking in long dresses & casual shoes, but if you want to go for this unique experience, then it's preferable to go dressed accordingly. 
From The Treasury, you can hike up further (around 900 steps) to the top of another hill to see The Monastery or even make the uphill journey on a mule/horse.
We had a 2-day pass for Petra and I'm glad I could visit this magical place on both days to fully experience & enjoy its rich history. You can even opt for the 1-day pass if you are in the country for a short stay.

Tickets: If you are staying overnight in Petra - 50 JD for 1 day, 55 JD for 2 days, 60 JD for 3 days
              If you are a day visitor in Petra - 90 JD

Guides: 50-100 JD depending upon what monuments you want to cover



3. Ruins of Ajloun Castle

One of the biggest & most fascinating castles situated in the Northwestern part of the country, this majestic fortress commands a stunning view of the Jordan valley. You can easily walk through the ruins and explore the various parts of the castle on your own as there is not much to be explained or pointed out by guides. The castle itself is situated on top of a hill and you've to trek up if you are walking from Ajloun. We had a car which took us right up to the visitor's centre though.

The crumbling facade of the castle & the broken towers lend an aura of rustic appeal to these 12th century ruins. The medieval Arab military architecture makes this castle an interesting tourist attraction. The ruins are well-preserved and perfectly safe for exploration even without guides or local help.

The fascinating maze of galleries, chambers, steep staircases & arched doorways make this castle an interesting destination for tourists. The view from the top or any of the towers is mesmerizing to say the least. Built atop the ruins of a monastery in the 12th century, these ruins are must-visit if you are exploring the Jerash & Ajloun region of Jordan.

Tickets: 3 JD, free for Jordan Pass holders


4. Christian ruins at Mt. Nebo

Holy ruins frequented by Christian pilgrims, Mt. Nebo is the place where Moses is said to have seen the Promised Land. Ancient remnants of a Church & a monastery can be seen at the top of the mountain where Moses is rumored to have been buried. Pilgrims flock to the summit where the Moses Memorial Church stands tall, with a modern chapel built on top of the ruins of the ancient Byzantine church.

The fascinating remains of the biblical structures can be seen, preserved by the modern outer structure of the renovated buildings - you can ogle at intricate mosaic floors dating back to 1400 years, marvel at the beauty of gorgeous stained-glass windows and get impressed by the well-preserved excavated ruins strewn around the complex. 
Even if you are not someone who is interested in holy pilgrimages or historical sites, you can still enjoy the stunning panoramic view of the Dead Sea & the Desert of Judah from the top of the mountain. 

Tickets: 2 JD


5. Roman ruins at Amman Citadel

These fascinating ruins that occupy the highest hilltop in Amman, the capital city of Jordan, date back to the Bronze Age! It's spread over a wide area on the peak of the city's biggest hill, and the view from the top is stunning - you can look down upon a panoramic expanse of downtown Amman and its same-colored buildings.

The most prominent feature of these ruins are the Roman pillars of the Temple of Hercules which still stand strong & victorious through hundreds & thousands of years of history. You can walk around and explore the ruins, and even check out some of the underground caves/hideouts if you are feeling adventurous.

The Citadel also houses a small but impressive Archeological Museum, behind which lies another attraction - the Umayyad Palace. The ruins of these 8th-century royal & residential buildings have been excavated by archaeologists since the 1920s. You can see the majestic domed audience hall and an ancient cistern that used to be the source of water supply for the area in days of yore.
It's preferable to take a taxi up to the citadel as the walk up and down can be pretty steep & tiring.

Tickets: 2 JD or free entry if you have the Jordan Pass

Guides: Knowledgeable guides available for around 15 JD near the ticket counter


You can definitely plan your next trip to Jordan (once international travel becomes safe once again) - if you have any concerns about safety or security of visiting such a country, rest assured, we did a girls trip and not for one moment did we feel unsafe or at risk.
This country is largely dependent on tourism for its economy, and they have been hit badly due to the pandemic (as a lot of other tourism-based countries). So, you can do your bit in helping this beautiful country get back on its feet - and have a safe trip yourself as this offbeat country will surely not have big tourist crowds like some other popular destinations!

Make sure you check out my post on 5 Things You Must Do In Jordan while planning the itinerary. It talks about some of the offbeat experiences that you might miss out on generally.


You can hit me up on Instagram - @styleprism - or email me on thestyleprism@gmail.com with any other queries you might have regarding travel to Jordan. I'll definitely try to help out however I can!

Here's hoping this year is nothing like the last one and we get back to traveling more & more soon!!!


Happy New Year!
Stay Safe!!

Organic Goodness For Your Skin With Deyga Organics

by , in

Times are stressful, the world is still in the grip of a pandemic and our lives have turned upside down. The effects of all these tough times are showing on our skin and I'm sure a lot of you out there are facing skincare issues, thanks to the anxiety, sleeplessness, long work-from-home hours etc. Our sleep cycles have gone haywire, our screen-time has increased manifold and we are constantly stressing over how to stay safe in the current situation - and all this is leading to issues like dark circles, rashes, acne, dullness, hairfall and such. 

So, this is the time we should be paying a little more attention to our skin and making sure we use chemical-free, natural skincare products that will help without damaging the skin. When I got to know about Deyga Organics, I was excited to try out a home-grown brand with handcrafted organic products made in India. Each product is made with enriching oils, natural ingredients and a whole lot of care to ensure that the user can celebrate her own natural, raw beauty.

Deyga Organics is a brand based in Tamil Nadu and they offer a wide range of skincare, haircare, oral care, baby care, bath & body products handcrafted from organic ingredients and the goodness of nature. I have been using the products sent to me for the past couple of weeks now and am finally sitting down to review them for you guys!

Deyga Basil Toner

A good toner is a must-have in every skincare kit and I've been loving using this refreshing Basil Toner from Deyga! It helps tighten pores, hydrate the skin and has been a great inclusion in my nightly skincare routine. It contains steam-distilled Basil that has detoxifying & antibacterial properties, which helps in taking care of acne-prone skin too.

This soothing toner can be used every night after cleansing the skin - it can be sprayed directly for a refreshing feel or dabbed on with a cotton ball/pad for cleaning out pores. I have also used this toner in my face packs as a diluting agent. It's priced decently too and there are quite a few other varieties of toners on the Deyga website to choose from (I'm eyeing the Rose and the Tea Tree ones next)!

Deyga Vanilla Deodorant

I was extremely excited to try out this organic, handmade roll-on deodorant that came in a sustainable cardboard tube packaging. The Vanilla deodorant stick looked quite interesting as I had not yet tried anything like this before! The packaging is quite sturdy and the deodorant stick has to be pushed out from the back as per requirement.

The texture of the product is slightly sticky, but blends smoothly when applied on the skin. Made using shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, beeswax, kaolin clay & vanilla essential oil - this natural deodorant is absolutely free of harmful chemicals, unlike the commercial deodorants we tend to use. The organic ingredients help absorb sweat, instead of blocking it, and the rich creamy aroma of vanilla uplifts your mood & spreads cheer wherever you go!

The fragrance stays for around 2-3 hours and the application is easy & smooth. It's really amazing to have a chemical-free deodorant stick that can help fight body odour without harming the skin. But, personally, I felt the vanilla aroma was a bit too sweet for my taste. I'm definitely thinking of trying their Jasmine variant though!

Deyga Beetroot Lip Balm

One can never have too many lip balms, and the Deyga Beetroot Lip Balm is a welcome addition to my beauty kit. The cute tin packaging was love at first sight, as was the pretty red tint of the balm! The texture of the product is light, smooth and the smell is fresh & subtle.

Made with beetroot extracts & natural minerals, this lip balm helps heal dry & chapped lips, keeps lips soft & supple and even lends a nice rosy tint when applied. All in all, a nourishing lip care product at a pocket-friendly price. No wonder it's one of their bestselling products!


Overall, I'm quite happy with the Deyga Organics products I've used till now and totally looking forward to trying out new things from their wide range of personal care products. 

The products I've used till now have suited to my skin type, but whenever you are buying any new skincare product, do check the skin type recommendation once in order to make sure it'll suit you and don't forget to do a patch test before using it fully. 

I would definitely recommend you to check out the Deyga Organics website and you'll be spoilt for choice with the appealing range of natural skincare, haircare & bodycare products available! Given our current economic scenario, we should aim at supporting more local, ethical, homegrown brands (instead of international corporations & commercial biggies) and this is my way of bringing new Made In India brands to you!

Do let me know if you try Deyga Organics and don't forget to me (@styleprism) on Instagram when you do!


Stay healthy, stay safe.

Web Series Review: Bebaakee – A Dramatic Tale of Friendship, Love and Passion

by , in

 

It’s September!  When the lockdowns started in March, we were hoping that things will be back to normal by June-July. But the situation worsened each month, and even after the economy opened up, things are anything but back to normal.  I don’t know about you all, but I’m very apprehensive of the situation all around and I’m still staying home as much as possible. Thankfully, I’m not losing my mind from boredom as I’m keeping myself entertained with interesting movies and shows on ZEE5. The latest Hindi web series that I enjoyed binge-watching on this streaming platform is #Bebaakee – and it was so impressive that I thought of sharing a quick review of the show with you guys. I know all of you stuck at home are dying for some good show recommendations and this review might help you choose the next one!

Bebaakee web series ZEE5 review entertainment

An Opulent Family Drama

In the history of Hindi OTT shows, there has not been a more regal indoor set than the family home of the protagonists of this series. Director Muzammil Desai has taken inspiration from grand movie sets to create a stunning mansion for the two media Moguls and best friends who stay together as one family. Their sons – Sufiyaan and Imitiaz - share a strong brotherly bond, which is eventually threatened by the force of love. The lavish opulence of their wealth, the high-society lifestyle and the typical rich-people ambience are conveyed effortlessly in the series. In the midst of innumerable crime thrillers and popular sit-coms flooding the streaming platforms, it is refreshing to watch a family drama that plays on the classic theme of a love triangle.


Unforgettable Characters

Well-written characters are the backbone of any show, and Bebaakee definitely impresses in that department. Sufiyan Alazi (played by Kushal Tandon) is the brooding young entrepreneur, expertly handling the empire of his father. Imtiaz (played by Karan Jotwani) is a playful, charming dude who reigns over the same empire alongside Sufiyan. Kainaat Sahni (played by web series debutante Shiv Jyoti Rajput) is a happy-go-lucky, passionate journalist who ends up being the love interest of both the men in the story. The senior generation is also played effortlessly well by the likes of Mohit Chauhan, Sameer Malhotra, Suchitra Pillai and Ananya Bellos, among others. The characters portray the high-class lifestyle with ease, keeping the whole mood of the drama toned down enough to give it the necessary classy webs series feel, instead of a trashy TV soap vibe.


A Passionate Plot

Sufiyan and Kainaat – the protagonists – couldn’t be more unlike each other. Kainaat is a bubbly, easy-going middle-class girl with a passion for journalism; while Sufiyan is a filthy-rich, intense businessman who comes from a prestigious & renowned family. But the law of love that dictates the attraction between opposites, holds true yet again as this unlikely couple gets drawn towards each other. The journey of their love story is far from easy though. They encounter numerous twists, turns, obstacles and clashes before they can even realise their own feelings for each other. Add to this, Imitiaz’s attraction to Kainaat, and we’ve got an intense love triangle that defies the bonds of friendship, brotherhood and loyalty. When Sufiyan and Imtiaz get ready to go to any lengths to secure a place in Kainaat’s heart, it not only threatens to destroy their brotherly bond, but also affects the family dynamics, the relationships and even the entire media business owned by the two families. The moody music – specially the soulful song Intehaan – holds the narrative together, while the gorgeous locales of Simla and Manali present the perfect backdrop for this drama to unfold against.

 

This gripping tale of family, love and friendship spans over 8 thrilling episodes that form Season 1 of this ZEE5 original web series. It’s one of the first prominent Muslim social dramas to be seen on any Indian OTT platform. The aesthetic cinematography, crisp direction, passionate dialogue delivery and well fleshed-out characters put this family and romantic drama in a league of its own. There are some intense dialogues that leave a mark on your heart, my favorite one being – “Hawa ke jhokon se bebaak mohabbat nahi bujhti, yeh #DilKiHichki hain jo ruhh ke saath fanaa hoti hain!” This is surely one of the must-watch shows among all the gems you can find in the #ZEE5Club. By now you must be dying to know who among Sufiyan and Imtiaz actually gets the girl? Well, tune in to ZEE5 and binge-watch Bebaakee today!

Fighting Fine Lines With The Aegte 24K Gold Vitamin C Face Serum

by , in
Aegte-gold-vitamin c-face-serum-skincare-review-sponsored-beauty-product-organic-Indian brand

With each passing day, our lives are becoming busier, hectic, rushed and exhausting. The ever-building increase in work pressure, family commitments, societal expectations, peer pressure and the need for social media validation has impacted not only our physical health, but also our state of mind. This, in turn affects our skin and gives us wrinkles, fine lines,dark circle, breakouts.
Of course, with age and with all the stress of life, my skin has lately lost its glow. Holiday tans would not go easily, sleepless nights gave me dark circles and when I looked into the mirror, I could see the appearance of fine lines and subtle wrinkles too. 

I have been hearing good things about Vitamin C serums and was on the lookout for a good, affordable, effective option when I saw the 24K Gold Vitamin C Face Serum by Aegte. I did some research and found out that Aegte is an Indian brand that makes skin and hair care products using natural ingredients and scientific precision. I've been trying to use chemical-free products in my skincare regime lately, so I thought of giving this 100% organic serum a try!

Aegte-gold-vitamin c-face-serum-skincare-review-sponsored-beauty-product-organic-Indian brand

Aegte-gold-vitamin c-face-serum-skincare-review-sponsored-beauty-product-organic-Indian brand

The product came in a well-packaged box and the bottle itself is pretty sturdy. The pump works well and smooth. The size is compact and travel-friendly too. The first impression was quite positive. I have been using the product for the past 7 days now and here's a quick review of what I think about the Aegte 24K Gold Vitamin C serum till now.

The serum is watery, a beautiful golden in color with a lovely shimmer. This lightweight serum applies smoothly and absorbs well in the skin. I apply a small amount - around 2-3 pumps - and massage it well on my face and neck, once before going to sleep every night. It can be used twice daily too for better results. The golden color doesn't make it shine when applied on the skin, it just leaves a very light sheen which blends into the skin after sometime. The fragrance is also very light and not strong on the senses.
After a few days, I started to see a smoothness of the skin, the dark circles started getting visibly lighter, and the fine lines lessened a bit. I can see the tan lightening. My skin feels soft, moisturized and smooth even in the morning. It has definitely helped keep my skin hydrated and got the glow back in my face. I'm sure with regular use over a longer period of time, it'll show better results and help me fight the oncoming signs of ageing, without the use of chemical or harsh ingredients.

The best part about the Aegte 24K Gold Vitamin C Serum is that each of the natural ingredients fulfills particular skincare needs. 
  • The Gold particles help in prevention of premature ageing, lessens wrinkles, fine lines and increases skin elasticity. Gold also aids in illuminating the skin and making it glow.
  • Vitamin C is a very popular skincare ingredient, as it provides sun protection, removes wrinkles, smoothens the skin. The antioxidants present in Vitamin C helps fight free radicals and prevent damage from harsh sun rays.
  • The Hyaluronic Acid has strong anti-ageing properties. It keeps skin hydrated and fights against any kind of skin infection.
  • Vitamin E works on unwanted marks and scars. It reduces spots and softens the skin.
  • Vitamin B5 helps in moisturization, nourishment and soothing the skin. It also helps regenerate skin cells.
  • Collagen boosters amps up the glow and lustre of the skin. It helps make the skin youthful and healthy.


Aegte-gold-vitamin c-face-serum-skincare-review-sponsored-beauty-product-organic-Indian brand

The Aegte 24K Gold Vitamin C Face Serum is swiftly proving to be an indispensible part of my night-time skincare routine. I love how light it feels on the skin and the fact that it's chemical-free and 100% organic makes me happy to use it. Even though I personally don't get acne or scars, I've heard it works well to remove dark spots & marks too. What's more, it's not unbelievably expensive like other luxury skincare products and you can use this to take care of your ageing skin without having to break the bank.

I'm looking forward to using the serum for a long time to come and fighting wrinkles & fine lines without harming my skin. India's first gold-based serum does give me a feel of luxurious and indulgent self-love when I apply it every night. It's suitable for all skin types. Let me know if you try it too!
Aegte is one of the best Indian skincare brands, and I am now interested to try some of their other products as well. 

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram and drop a hi if you like my content!
Hope you all are staying home and staying safe in the current situation. Take care. Wear a mask.
