Duke's Diwans is one of the best places to visit in Amman. It is a well preserved ancient structure that has remained unchanged even with modernization taking over major buildings in the city. The interiors and exteriors of this building are enchanting, and the surroundings as well.
This house retains its original doors and windows that are from the early nineteen ninety’s and the furniture remains untouched leaving the visitors wondering how many historical figures ever walked on the same rooms.
This Duke’s Diwan house will forever remain to be the paint of magical picture of a customary Levantine house. The house remains to be open daily after all in Arabic Diwan means “The guest’s place.”

Amman Theatre was constructed back in the second century during the reigns of Antonius Pius (AD 138-61) and Marcus Aurelius (161-180 AD). In 1957.The theatre had three main horizontal sections referred to as diazomata.
Side entrances referred to as paradoi were found on the ground level, one led to the stage while the other led to the orchestra.
In the ancient times the Roman dignitaries and other superior persons would sit on the uppermost seats on the theatre other than sitting on the seats that were closest to the performers.
The uppermost section was referred to as “The God’s” and it offered a good view due to the steepness of the stairs.
For lovers of photography this is a good place to visit especially during the morning or the late afternoon hours as there is an excellent natural lighting. If you visit the theatre at night you will find a place that is well illuminated with floodlights.
