Mosque of King Abdullah I
With a capacity of 3,000, this mosque was built in the late 20th century by late King Hussein. It’s owned by the Government of Jordan and allows visitors to admire the stunning architecture especially the blue and golden ceiling. Check out the stylish inscriptions of the Quran on the tiles. The exterior is superb photography material.
The Islamic Museum inside the mosque houses a small collection of photographs and personal effects of King Abdullah I. Shards of ancient pottery are also on display together with coins and stone engravings.
- Men are supposed to wear long trousers.
- Women are supposed to conceal their head and limbs.
- They provide a free abaya or hooded gown to enter.
Our next destination which will quench your thirst for history is The Citadel. It is not a stop you would want to miss due to its great significance. You will notice that it's situated on an L-shaped mountain, where it beautifully captures the incredible views of the seven mountains that assemble Amman, where you can inhale the surrounding atmosphere.
What you can see in the Citadel:
- Cistern: This large cistern, located to the right of the vestibule, was the primary water supply to the governor's palace.
- Byzantine Church: The Byzantine basilica's nave is flanked by two rows of columns. The photo looks eastwards from the entrance down the length of the nave, towards the partially reconstructed semicircular wall of the apse.
- Umayyad Mosque: The remains of the Umayyad governor’s palace mosque dating from the 8th century
- Governor's Palace and Mosque: The dome is a modern reconstruction that gives the building an odd, Pac-Man-like appearance. The entrance to the vestibule is the large semicircular archway below the dome.
- Temple of Hercules: Larger than any temple in Rome itself, the massive structure faces east and is seen here from the front (northeast corner.) The temple portico is framed by six 33-foot-tall columns
- Dome of the Vestibule: The interior of the dome of the Umayyad vestibule is shown here. The original dome's interior would have been painted and plastered, giving a much different appearance.
We will now head off to the Roman Amphitheater, which is another impressive remnant of Roman rule in Jordan. Whilst it isn't quite the Colosseum, it's an interesting place to take in for an hour or so.
The Royal Automobile Museum
Visit the Royal Automobile Museum, located at the King Hussein Park in Amman. The museum features the private collection of the late King Hussein, and showcases the history of Jordan through an amazing collection of modern and classic cars and motorbikes that date back to the great Arab revolt. The museum is open for guests on a daily basis except for Tuesdays.
If Time Permits, you will have free time in Amman Old Market, also known as Souks, which are bustling with energy, people and of course, many unique items to buy. From spices and produce to jewelry, carpets, and pottery, the markets in Amman each offer their unique items and experience.
After Breakfast, you will have a whole day to explore the King's highway, which was once, part of the ancient Silk Road. Depart for a journey south of Amman to visit Mt Nebo, where Mosses is believed to be buried. It is the most reserved holy site in Jordan and a place of pilgrimage for Christians.
Next, head to the Biblical city of Madaba “The City of Mosaics”. You will be visiting the St. George Greek Orthodox Church, where you will see the masterpiece of Madaba (a Byzantine mosaic map of the Holy Land that goes back to the 6th century, showing Jerusalem and other cities), you will also visit the Archaeological Park, which houses the remains of several Byzantine churches, including the amazing mosaics of the Church of the Virgin.
Afterwards, you will be going around the deep valley of Wadi Mujib, that offers one of the best views this part of the country has to offer.
Proceed to visit Karak Castle, an ancient Crusader stronghold, which is the largest late Islamic castle in Jordan. You will visit one of the largest Crusader fortresses that are found in the Levant region. Karak was once a powerful kingdom that was situated on a hilltop, 1000 meters above sea level. Karak is surrounded on three sides by a deep valley, and a town was built on a triangular plateau around the castle; the city’s layout dates back to the 19th century, specifically the Ottoman Empire Period. The narrow streets and crumbling buildings give you a feeling of walking through history.
The view from the top of the fortress is stunning. Far below you see farmland, blocked off by different colors; looking out into the distance, the Dead Sea can be seen.
After breakfast, start a full day tour exploring the magnificent, mysterious, rock-carved red rose city of Petra or sometimes known as The Lost City.
Spend the day experiencing this ancient Nabataean city. Walk through the Siq, the three-quarter-mile narrow gorge (1.2 km) that opens up to the magnificent Treasury, the entrance guarding the old city. Then explore the Street of Facades, a row of monumental Nabataean tombs, as you work your way to the steps that lead you to the High Place of Sacrifice. Take in the view of Wadi Musa below and if you have the energy, why not climb up the additional 800 steps to Petra's largest monument, the Monastery.
Breakfast and drive to The Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth, with its 423 meters below sea level. Free day at leisure to enjoy the unique salty water, which is four times saltier than normal seawater. This unusually salty, buoyant and mineral - rich water has attracted visitors since ancient times, all of whom have floated effortlessly on their backs while soaking up the water's healthy minerals along with the gently defused rays of the Jordanian sun.
