Jordan Amman King Abdullah Mosque

Straddling seven hills, Jordan’s capital is both a modern metropolis and a testament to the region’s rich history. Visitors can find a restored 2nd-century Roman stone theatre dug into one of the many hillsides of Amman’s downtown, while the Citadel, a sprawling archeological site, looms from the city’s highest hill. Alongside the Citadel’s most impressive sight, the Temple of Hercules, which dates back to 162AD, the city also boasts newer sights, such as the mosques, souqs and coffee shops which are central to contemporary Jordanian culture.
