Amman Travel Guide


Overview

Amman, capital of Jordan since 1921, is a typical city in the Middle East. Called formerly "the Rome of the Middle East" as built on seven hills, the Jordanian capital is currently based on 19 hills. Go to the old districts of the downtown Amman, where the main part of the tourist sites concentrates, around the old souk, a busy market and the King Hussein Mosque, also known as al-Husseini Mosque, one of the oldest in the city. Do not miss its Roman Theater, the largest of Jordan and its Nymphaeum and its Citadel. Amman is a city that penetrates the desert day by day... Let yourself be taken by its charm!

Construction on the hill of the Citadel of Amman, known as Jabal el Qala, dating from the Roman and Byzantine eras, with later additions (at the beginning of Islam). The fortress is also home to the Temple of Hercules, which was built under the reign of Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius.

Behind the site of the ancient forum, is a Roman theater, the largest of Jordan, with 6 000 places. It was built between 138 and 161 AD by Emperor Antoninus Pius, it leans to the side of a hill, and is still used for performances.

Amman also has some of the most impressive mosques in the Middle East. Most recently the huge King Abdullah I Mosque, built between 1982 and 1989. It is topped with a magnificent blue mosaic dome, which can accommodate 3 000 people.
