Book a flight to Amman with Qatar Airways
With more than 7,000 years of recorded history behind it, Amman is one of the Middle East’s cultural epicentres. The first thing you’ll notice about the Jordanian capital is its skyline, defined by the seven hills on which the city was originally built. These hills have helped define the city’s various districts, each showcasing its own charm and attractions.
Formerly called Philadelphia, after the Ptolemaic king Philadelphus, Amman has been influenced by several cultures. Many expanding civilisations have left their mark on the city, from the Ammonites, Assyrians and Nabateans, to the Romans, Umayyads and Ottomans. Each of them once considered the city their home and are credited for having a profound impact on its remarkable architecture. As a result, Amman’s buildings are as varied as they are startling, charting the ages between antiquity and modernity, but with no more than a street between them.
