Amman History

The Old Testament of the Bible has many references to the city; these references mostly belong to a period of Amman history when it had served as the capital of the Ammonites and was known as Rabbath Ammon. The city also saw Assyrian and Persian rules before falling to the Greeks. In 3rd century BC, the Ptolemaic ruler Philadelphus renames the city after himself and thereafter it becomes famous as Philadelphia. read more

Amman Sightseeing

Amman has quite a few mosques, of which at least three are remarkable for their architecture. We first name the Abu Darwish Mosque, which stands on the hill named Jabal al-Ashrafiyeh. The use of alternating layers of white and black stones gives the mosque its stunning look. (Followers of Islamic faith are the only ones allowed inside this mosque). read more
