Amman

Amman is the capital and most populated city of Jordan. Amman is a popular tourist destination in the region, being the home to many landmarks of the Classical and Islamic era. The city is spread across seven hills, offering a combination of modern architecture and historical sites. The Dead Sea is just a short trip away from the city. This spectacular Salt Lake is 430.5 metres below sea level and the Earth’s lowest point on land.

Attractions

  • Historical Amman Citadel

    Excavations have unearthed human occupation since the Middle Bronze Age. Different peoples and cultures have come and gone, including the Assyrians, Babylonians, and Persians, right through to the Ummayyads. The city became largely abandoned towards the end of the 19th Century. It now houses the Hand of Hercules, a remnant of the Roman Temple of Hercules during their occupation in 2nd Century AD.

  • Ancient Roman Theatre

    Completed in the 2nd Century AD, it is three-tiered with rulers seated in front, military in the middle and public at the back. A nod to Roman Philadelphia, it seats 6000 spectators and was cut into the northern side of a hill, so as to keep the sunlight out of spectators’ eyes. It is now used for cultural activities in the capital, attracting people from all over the region.

  • Float on the Dead Sea

    The world’s saltiest body of water has been a tourist haven for thousands of years with one of the world’s first health resorts, founded by Herod the Great. Its unique geology makes it a source for various products, including asphalt for Egyptian mummification and minerals for cosmetics. Visitors can float effortless over the waters or coat themselves in the therapeutic black mud.

  • King Abdulla Mosque Opened

    This blue-domed mosque is open to tourists in Jordan and features ornate Quranic calligraphy throughout, as well as intricate arabesque designs and a stylised chandelier. A small museum is located next to the entrance and celebrates the life of the late King Abdulla bin Al-Hussein, to whom the mosque is dedicated.
