Amman has chosen to embrace the 21st century, and while it is packed with ancient temples, ruins and beautiful mosques, it is also a city that focuses on art and literature. However, Amman also has its traditional side, and celebrates its history and culture in museums and beautifully preserved monuments.
The Citadel is located on Amman’s highest hill, Jebel al-Qala’a and is the location of the modern city’s predcessor, Rabbath-Ammon. It is surrounded by a beautifully preserved wall, but its most striking features are the Temple of Hercules and the Ummayad Palace.
