Historical City Of Amman by Adam Singleton
|There aren't many areas
of the world that can claim to have been inhabited by people from as far
back as the Neolithic period; but Amman in Jordan is one such location.
No visit to Amman is complete
unless you take the time to explore these ancient roots. The city is the
capital of Jordan, and while there are many modern sights to view, it is
perhaps the ancient ones that draw the most attention from visiting tourists.
It is this heady mix of sights that make Amman such a fascinating place
A classic example of this
is the Roman theatre. It sits within the city and nestles alongside many
modern buildings. Don't miss the two museums that are on site as well;
they provide another way to learn more about Amman.
You can also see what remains
of the great Temple of Hercules. It is believed that the temple may not
actually have been finished during the time it was built - back in 162
AD. But what remains today is still enchanting and takes you back to another
|The Citadel should definitely
be the next stop on your list. This is actually one of the best places
to take some pictures of the Temple of Hercules, so make sure you bring
your camera along - you can also see the Omayyad Palace from here. Among
other things, the Citadel also has a Byzantine church within it, a museum
and a mosque.
Amman also benefits from
the fact that all these outstanding - and quite humbling - sights are located
very close together, making it is easy to walk between them all. The fact
that the city is also situated high up gives you a great vantage point
to look down below.
Another way to see some of
the ancient sights and finds in Amman is to visit the many museums that
are situated within the city. One of the best is the Jordan Archaeological
Museum, which is on Citadel Hill. It offers exhibits which relate to many
different ancient periods in time, which provide you with a better picture
of the history of Amman. The museum itself has only been around since the
1950s, but it has established itself as a stunning and very worthwhile
place to visit during any holiday to the city.
Once you arrive from your
to Amman, it can prove beneficial to begin planning that all important
itinerary before setting out to explore the many ancient sights the city
has to offer.
