Amman



Amman

It is a fascinating city of contrasts – a unique blend of old and new, ideally situated on a hilly area between the desert and the fertile Jordan Valley. The city is generally well-appointed for the traveler, reasonably well-organized, and the people are very friendly.

Amman is among the most popular locations for multinational corporations to set up their regional offices, alongside Doha and only behind Dubai. It is a major tourist destination in the region and the capital is especially popular among Gulf tourists.

There are places to visit as, The Roman Theatre,a Roman-era Nymphaeum, an Ammonite-era watchtower, the Citadel ,the Temple of  Herakles , the Byzantine Church, the Ummayad Palace Darat al Funun and  Monument to the Unknown Soldier.

Darat al Funun or 'small house of the arts' in Jabal el Weibdeh, overlooking the heart of Amman, is housed in three adjacent villas from the 1920s (and the remains of a sixth-century Byzantine church built over a Roman Temple).

Today, West Amman is a lively, modern city. The eastern part of the city, where the majority of Amman's residents live, is predominantly the residential area of the working class and is much older than the west. While possessing few sites itself, Amman makes a comfortable base from which to explore the northwestern parts of the country.

The cultural scene in Amman has seen some increased activities, notably cultural centers and clubs such as Makan House, Al Balad Theater, the Amman Filmmakers Cooperative, Remall, and Zara gallery. Around the 1st of September the Jordan Short Film Festival takes place. The people of Amman are welcome visitors and take pride in showing them.
