What travelers are saying
- This is worthwhile to visit in conjunction with Jerash. I would recommend to visit with a guide to get the most out of it. The museum on site is especially worth a wander around.
Artefacts from the Bronze Age leading through the Iron, Roman, Byzantine and Umayyad periods demonstrate the importance of this highest hill in Amman.Written 7 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- You need to buy the 2 JD ticket from the booth across the square in front, or have the Jordan Pass but entry also gets you into the two museums inside as well which were interesting too.
I enjoyed wandering here and imagining the long history of events that would have taken place here.

- I visited this area numerous times during my time in Amman as a solo female traveller and wandered down the little souls enjoying the hustle and bustle of locals lives. Very photogenic and enjoyable for buying some souvenirs, or just people watching!Written 6 August 2022
- my husband runs a history museum in the US - so we visit history museums everywhere. This is an amazing overview of the long history of the region, with great artifacts, maps, etc.Written 20 July 2022
- Interesting area of Amman pretty much requalified and made more youngsters friendly. We decided to spend an evening strolling around after reading its beauties on our Lonely Planet but we have been a bit disappointed, maybe we expected too muchWritten 17 January 2022
- Such a beautiful and unexpected surprise! This mosque is open to non-Muslims. The staff has been very kind and the mosque itself is really worth a visit. It’s huge and I recommend to visit early when not crowdedWritten 19 May 2022
- You can add this destination to your agenda while you're in Amman, especially if you are interested in religious stories. This is the cave where 7 youths hid themselves to avoid persecution by the Romans and slept for 309 years, as mentioned in the Quran. The cave tour is free and open at 10 am. If you like to take pictures, I would suggest coming earlier so you can have the outside of the cave for yourself. For females, if you're not wearing a hijab, abaya is available upon entrance, which you can wear for free. To reach this place from Amman, you can ride an Uber for around 30 minutes (around 6JD) and order another one to take you back to Amman.Written 18 June 2022
- By Amman standards this is a largish mall (more of a typical UK city mall in size) - all the usual international brands and a Carrefour supermarket. Food court on top floor has all the usual fast food eateries. Clean and air conditioned so nice for a break from mid day heat. It cost us 3 dinars metered taxi from W hotel to get there.Written 19 May 2022
- There are two giant pillars remaining of the Roman Temple of Hercules. The temple was built during the reign of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius (AD 161-80).
The whole site has been occupied since the Bronze Age.
It was helpful to visit here with a knowledgeable guide to really give you all the important details.Written 7 August 2022
- This area is gradually taking over from Rainbow street as the place to visit for bars, restaurants, art galleries and just generally wandering around. The two streets that should be visited are located by Paris Square (which is actually a circle). The place really comes alive at night as there are few visitors before then. I really enjoyed the street art on walls and on buildingsWritten 16 September 2021
- Truly surprised by this museum! It is a world class tank museum sitting in downtown Amman. If you have even a glancing interest in tanks and/or armoured vehicles you will not regret making the effort to check out this museum. The variety of the collection is impressive, the displays are exceptionally well done and the restorations are first class.
Kudos to the Jordanians for having the vision and succeeding!
Regrettably, Canada's best efforts in this field would not approach half of what Jordan has achieved with this museum (sorry Canadian War Museum).Written 29 July 2022
- Nice street for walk. There are shops, restaurants and cafes. It’s nice at night, and it’s family oriented kind of place.
I went a bit early in the evening and was pretty empty, maybe people go there late at night. If you’re in Amman and have time it’s worth checking out.Written 25 February 2020
- in the way of petra. its nice just a caravanserai in the middle of nothing. don't deserve a trip just to visit thatWritten 21 July 2022
- This is for sure one of the highlights in a visit of Amman in order to understand properly the ancient history of this amazing city.
Located inside the Citadel and with a free entry, it's worth a visitWritten 17 January 2022
