For me this was a very interesting visit especially since the Quran story is brought to life. Pity that some of the inscriptions have been damaged. But the area is well maintained and secured. The new mosque and gardens are very beautiful.

Stopped here on my tour south to Petra. Not crowded and the history behind this spot was fascinating. Stop and visit if time allows.

The place worth to visit, no doubt, a gentleman frequently comes to open the door of the case and deliver a short description about the cave, Cds sold that have information about the place and the history. Modern Masjed around with modern facility

Remarkable place set on the grounds of a beautiful mosque. There is a guide who gives the background of the seven sleepers which is very informative. Roman and Islamic influences abound.

No charges for entry. Visitors enter the cave in batches. These batches are entertained by a local person who gives a detailed briefing on the historical background. This is free as well.
