Amman, the capital city of Jordan

Amman, the capital city of Jordan, is a modern and bustling place which houses the majority of the country's arts and business facilities

Although most of Amman's architecture is concrete and steel, circa 1960, Amman is not entirely the product of the late 20th century planning and the remnants of its long and distinguished history are a pleasant surprise to stumble across.
A Roman amphitheatre and attendant Odeon can be found at the heart of downtown Amman (Al Balad ) whilst a citadel sits on the hill that overlooks the amphitheatre and is a patchwork of Roman, Byzantine, and Islamic remains
