Amman is the capital and largest city of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan with a population of more than four million.
Amman forms a great base for exploring not just Jordan, but the wider region as well and does, despite popular belief, offer much that is of interest to the traveller. The city is generally reasonably well-organized, enjoys great weather for much of the year and the people are very friendly.

This site is recognized for its historical importance and its 'special place in the hearts of Amman residents.’ The Amman Archeological Museum is located on Citadel Hill, near the Temple of Hercules. The collection spans thousands of years and features a large variety of items. Several noteworthy pieces include the Ain Ghazal statues, which are some of the world’s oldest statues, the famous Dead Sea scrolls, the ancient vases, a copy of the Mesha Stele and preserved rhino body parts from more than 200,000 years ago.

Downtown (Arabic = Al Balad)
The Balad is the oldest section of the city, being the one that was originally inhabited during the Neolithic period around 6500 B.C. The seven jabals, or hills, around it were occupied during the same time and formed the perimeter of the young city, most notably the Citadel atop Citadel Hill.
