The Cave of the Seven Sleepers (Ahl al-Kahf  in Arabic) is a famous pilgrimage site in the outskirts of Amman, just about 7km from city centre.

It is associated with a common story of Christianity and Islam that gradually faded away and got forgotten by most Christians. However, Holy Qur’an still preserves this story in Surah al-Kahf 18 (the cave).

We have to note that this is just one of the places that claim to be the cave of the seven sleepers, and the most famous one is located at Ephesus, Turkey.
