Amman: Jordan's axis of ancient, modern, east and west The cosmopolitan capital of Jordan sprawls across seven hills and its history reaches back 33 centuries. Amman is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world; from ancient Greek and Roman regimes to Ottoman and British rule, and then Jordanian independence since 1946, the city has been an economic and cultural crossroads of the Middle East. Amman's sophisticated, modern face shines on its western side, where the Jordan Gate Towers rise over an urbane neighbourhood of shopping centres, galleries, restaurants, and most of the city's buzzing nightlife. Eastern Amman preserves the city's older residential buildings, white limestone structures perched on the hilly terrain. In the central “downtown” area (Al-Balad), explore historical sites like the Citadel, known as Jabal al-Qal'a, with its Temple of Hercules, Byzantine church and Ummayad Palace. Nearby, the stunning Roman amphitheatre and forum are must-sees. At the heart of Amman beats the bustling area of Jabal Amman; the Souk Jara is a magnet for locals and tourists, and Rainbow Street draws strollers day and night for shopping, dining and people-watching.
