  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Sekrab  

    Qasr Al Mushatta is attractive ruins in Amman.

    They are eighth century ruins and are partially reconstructed ruins of the winter palace of Umayyad Caliph walid two. They were planned as a lavish castle but they never finished.

    They are a short drive from the international airport but one has to get a personal means of transport or hire a taxi in order to reach them.

    These ruins were partly destroyed by earthquakes and hence most of the columns and watch towers have long since collapsed however the huge exterior wall and carved facades hint the original grandeur and the original beauty of the site.

    At the entrance of the ruins you find a mosque with its obviously rebuilt Mihrab which is used to indicate the direction of Mecca.

    The northern sections have remains of a vaulted audience hall and residences. There are segmented pillars that lie scattered around like broken vertebrae.

    There is one unusual feature of the site that is the vaults that were made from burnt bricks which is an uncommon material in buildings of this style rather than using black basalt.

    You will also find ancient toilets that are compete with drains and they are located at the back of the hall.

      • Amman

        Amman is the capital of Jordan and the largest city of the Hashemite kingdom located in the central west part of Jordan. It covers an area of 1680 kilometers squared. The modern city is characterized by several ancient ruins, museums, numerous tourists’ attraction sites, galleries archaeological and cultural heritage sites. It is built over seven hills and commonly referred to as the ‘White City’.

        Most of the buildings in this city are white in color or beige due to the materials used in construction and hence the name “white city”. Amman has a population of more than 4 million people. Jordan is mainly a desert country with steep and hilly terrain.

        The people are very friendly and welcoming. There is diverse culture and religion; you will find both Christians and Muslims in this city. The official language used in the city is mainly Arabic though many people are able to communicate fluently in English especially those working in the tourism industry. The city has undergone civilization dating back to 8,000 BC.

        It is evidenced by imprints left on the caves, churches, buildings, mosques and amphitheaters by the Greeks, Ghassanids Romans, Assyrians, Babylonians, Bani Ammon, Heksus and the Umayyad. Accessing the city could be a challenge but it holds a lot of beautiful sites to visit.

        While the city has never boasted a vast array of Islamic antiquities or history delving back over the centuries like several of its Middle Eastern cousins, Amman is nevertheless an important city of Jordan, especially in the 21st century as the place goes from the quiet little countryside town to a bustling metropolis. Home to the University of Jordan as well as some strangely out-of-place Roman ruins like the Roman Theater, the Nymphaeum, or the Citadel with its Roman Temple of Herakles or the 5th century Byzantine Church, or the Ummayad Palace, Amman is much, much more than just another city in Jordan. This is a cultural hotspot, and is one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, and definitely the place you want to be to really see what’s going on beneath the surface. 

        Amman is one of the most Westernized cities in Jordan. Home to some of the best schools in the nation, including the University of Jordan, Amman is a haven for the young and brilliant generations of not only Jordan, but also of Palestine and Iraq. Their tolerant views have helped push the city in a Westernized direction and have fueled the fires of modernization in the belly of the city, creating a controlled sense of chaos as the city emerges from its dusty cocoon into the modern world of skyscrapers and high-tech. While the city is Islamic at its core, it is a tolerant sort of Islam that allows its women to wear whatever they want and its people to enjoy life as it was meant to be.

        Between the ancient ruins of old and the sparkling new buildings rising above, there is a unique blend of traditional and modern within Amman, and it’s definitely an experience that you cannot get anywhere else in the world. From Starbucks to 5 star hotels to ancient Roman ruins to ancient Islamic ruins to modern skyscrapers, it is a dizzying blend of uniqueness.

      • The Jordan Museum
        Jordan Museum is another interesting site to visit in Amman and was established in 1951.

        It is located in Ras Al Ein district of Jordan next to city hall. It was built in the year two thousand and fourteen and it is the largest museum in Jordan that hosts the country’s most important archaeological findings.

        It presents artefacts that are from the diverse ancient archaeological sites in Jordan which include the 7500 BC Ain Ghazal statutes which are regarded as some of the oldest human statutes ever made by human civilisation.

        The collections found in the museum are arranged in a chronological order and it also features lecture halls, a library, outdoor exhibitions, a conservation centre and an area where the children can hold their activities.

        This museum was established by our queen Rania which became the only museum to implement modern artefact preserving technologies in Jordan.

        We hope that one day the galleries upstairs covering the Islamic Jordan to Arab revolt will be finally finished.

      • Roman Theatre

        The Roman Theatre is a popular site in Jordan, a perfect location for sightseeing with a capacity of 6,000 seats. It is located in the heart of the city of Amman previously known as Philadelphia. Roman theatre is in close proximity to the popular Hashemite Square.

        The most suitable time to visit the landmark is early morning before it gets too hot to tour around. 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.

        This Roman theatre is open for those who want to visit the place and it hosts many local events like Al-Balad music festival.

        • Unfinished Umayyad Palace from early 8th century AD. It is quite atmospheric specially at early morning or late evening sun when the red brick walls seem to glow making it a very photogenic building in the desert. Don't miss the latrine which was built within a niche in the chamber behind the audience hall. Enter through the east door to reach it. Beware, there are no tourist facilities including (modern) restrooms here. One should be mindful not to disturb anything, and not to litter the place. Therefore, one's garbage should be collected and brought home.
        • The place is outstanding peace of history however there was no guards at the gates nor guides to explain anything about it .... u just have to either google or guess what happened in there ... still a place to visit if u gather enough historical information about it before going
        • Red stones historical monument
        • Old and historic milestone but sadly its neglected and there is no care or attention to the place, the dirt filled the castle
