Travel Tips to Amman (AMM)
Worth seeing in Amman: Wander in the rosy glow of the houses
On one side a desert region, the lush green Jordan Valley on the other and Amman in between. Amman is the capital of Jordan where the ancient and modern lie cheek by jowl. The houses are clad in a gentle pink-coloured coquina which glistens in the sun. This uniformity is due to a city regulation which requires the use of regional stone for the fascias of residential buildings. Amman is a prosperous city which is being actively renovated - lots of older buildings are being demolished and replaced with new ones. The many trees on streets and alleys provide a beautiful overall look and feel. Experience it all for yourself with a flight to Amman today.
King Abdullah Mosque with its sky blue dome
Countless sights bear the name of Jordan’s king. These are in each case the seats of religious and state leadership of the city. The king of the time, King Hussein I, had the King Abdullah Mosque built in honour of his grandfather. Its two minarets tower high over the roofs of Amman. Its trademark is the giant dome, which covers the central nave without any supports to spoil the view. This is enriched with an expensive mosaic whose sky-blue colour catches the eye from afar. Below it is a prayer space for up to 3,000 men. Women may only enter the place of worship covered to the ankles, and have their own area of the building for their devotions.
Archaeological Museum with rare exhibits
The Archaeological Museum of Amman awaits, with what is thought to be the oldest sculptures created by human hand in the world, called the Ain Ghazal Statues. This collection of 15 statues and 15 busts are intricately made from limestone. Its creation has been dated to between 8000 and 6000 BC. Various historical scrolls are another pride of the collection; among which is the only copper scroll, found at the Dead Sea. Four very well-preserved sarcophagi from the Iron Age and countless ancient flint, glass, ceramic and metal vessels further add to the richness of the unique display, which covers history from the Neolithic Age to the 15th century.
Historic royal motor park
You can see high-class vehicles in the Amman Royal Automobile Museum. The extraordinary collection presents countless historical automobiles. Amongst these are a 1952 Lincoln Capri and a 1936 Cord 810. The first of these was used by King Hussein I during his days as a student in England and in 1953 for his coronation. The latter was a wedding gift two years later. The star attraction is a Mercedes-Benz 300 SL sports car. This was driven by the aforementioned king during the famous “Rumman Hill Climb” in Jordan. Electronic audio guides are available in four different languages. Book your flights to Amman with FlyDoha and enjoy the royal atmosphere of Jordan’s capital!
