Tourism in Amman
Amman is the economic, industrial and administrative capital of Jordan. Of Roman origin, it’s one of the cities that have been occupied by the largest number of different cultures throughout its history. It’s an important modern metropolis, where the Muslim majority lives alongside the Christian minority.
In Amman, you can visit the most modern part of the city, and not far from there, stroll through the traditional bazaars of the city centre. We invite you to walk along the narrow lanes and various commercial zones to sample the wonderful dishes that have come about as a result of the curious mixture of cultures in this city. For Christians, the area holds great significance, as it’s only a 45-minute drive to the place where it is said that Jesus was baptized in the River Jordan.
Amman offers numerous points of interest for tourists, including the Citadel, along with the Greek acropolis boasting a Roman theatre. The King Abdullah Mosque is a precious temple of great beauty, crowned by a splendid blue dome.
