Amman city Tour

Amman Citadel :

The Amman Citadel is a historical site at the center of downtown Amman, Jordan.

also in Arabic as Jabal al-Qal’a, the L-shaped hill  one of the seven jabals originally The Older made up Amman.

Not to Mention The area known as the Citadel sits on the highest hill in Amman, Jebel al-Qala’a (about 850m above sea level), and  the site of ancient Rabbath-Ammon. Occupied since the Bronze Age, surrounded by a 1700m-long wall, which rebuilt many times during the Bronze and Iron Ages, as well as the Roman, Byzantine and Umayyad periods. There’s plenty to see, but the Citadel’s most striking sights are the Temple of Hercules and the Ummayad Palace.

Umayyad Palace :

Also The Umayyad Palace is a large palatial complex from the Umayyad period, located on the Citadel Hill (Jabal al-Qal’a) of Amman, Jordan. Built during the first half of the 8th century, now largely ruined, with a restored domed entrance chamber, known as the “kiosk” or “monumental gateway”

Climbing the signposted path from the Temple of Hercules, you pass a small ruined Byzantine church on the right, dating from the fifth or sixth century, which reused many of the columns from the nearby temple. also The church formed part of a Byzantine town which probably covered much of the hill.

he remains of a large Umayyad mosque on the left indicate the beginning of the huge Umayyad Palace complex, which also stretches over the northern part of the hill.
