Jerash's picturesque ruins are all that remains of a once-great ancient city
Jerash – Ajloun – AmmanExplore two beautiful cities in Jordan.
One of Jordan’s most stunning sites, the Roman-Byzantine city of Jerash was once one of the ten cities of the Decapolis. Much of the city still stands, giving visitors a clear idea of its former glory as they explore pillar-lined boulevards, public bath houses, the hippodrome, the ancient theatre, and temples.
This lush green, mountainous area in the north of Jordan is known locally as ‘The Fertile Crescent. It is home to a Crusader-era castle, olive farms, charming rural villages, a nature reserve, and important Biblical churches.
Qasr-Al-Kharrana Castle, Jordan
Amman – Amman City Tour – Desert castles – AmmanAmman
Once known as the ancient city of Philadelphia, Amman is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. It is home to some of the best hummus and falafel shops in the country, lively souks, a Roman amphitheater, trendy art galleries, and boutiques. Because Amman is built on seven hills, one of them home to the city’s ancient citadel, there are wonderful panoramic views to be had all over the city.
This well-preserved example of early Islamic architecture is an enigma; archaeologists theorize that it may have been a meeting place for traders or Bedouins, a caravanserai, or a military fortress. It is one of the best-known and most photographic desert castles.
Widely regarded as the most famous and best-preserved Umayyad castle of them all, Amra Castle has been granted UNESCO World Heritage status. The inside of the building features risqué and surprisingly colorful, eighth-century frescoes of naked women, wine-drenched festivities, hunting parties, and zodiac symbols that suggest additional, non-Islamic influences on the castle.
Translated as ‘The Blue’, this vast expanse of eastern desert is home to a large oasis whose waters historically attracted both Bedouin tribes and native wildlife. It is also home to Azraq Castle, which was built with distinctive black basalt starting in the third century A.D.
Sculpture at the entrance of Mt. Nebo, Madaba, Jordan
Amman – Madaba – Nebo – Shobak – PetraMadaba
The Jordanian city of mosaics, Madaba is also famous for its many Christian pilgrimage sites. The Greek Orthodox Basilica of Saint George contains undoubtedly the most famous mosaic in the country, the oldest existing map of Palestine and Jerusalem, dating from AD 560 and depicting all the major biblical sites in the Middle East.
The church atop Mount Nebo today commemorates the burial site of the Prophet Moses, as it was from here that he was granted a view of the Promised Land before he died. The site offers views over the Jordan valley, and a short hike away is the famous spring Moses is said to have conjured with his staff.
The Crusader castle of Shawbak was built in the 10th century AD and was an important trade stop for caravans. It was rebuilt by the Mamelukes in the 14th century, and the ruins retain many Mameluke characteristics today. The castle offers spectacular views over the surrounding dunes, whose colors shift according to the sun.
Petra was the capital of the ancient Nabataean civilization
Petra – Full day visitJordan’s most iconic location, this 6th-century BC Nabatean city is one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. The rose-red city, as it is known, was once an important trading hub on the incense trail between Aqaba and Damascus. Its carved facades are scattered over a vast area of rocky land – an awe-inspiring historical monument to an ancient civilization.
Camel ride in Wadi Rum, Jordan
Petra - Little Petra – Wadi RumLittle Petra
A ten-minute drive north of Petra is Siq Al-Barid, which is also referred to as 'Little Petra' due to its similarities with the main site. It is thought to have been an important suburb of Petra and is entered through a narrow opening, similar to Siq but of a much smaller scale. The site includes tombs, temples, water channels, and cisterns carved out of the rock as well as the remains of frescoes on plaster.
The lunar landscape of this vast southern desert was immortalized through the stories of T.E. Lawrence during the Arab Revolt and is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Visitors can explore on foot, by camel, or in a 4x4, though the best way to experience Wadi Rum is by staying the night under a blanket of stars in a Bedouin camp.
Sunset in Aqaba, Jordan
Wadi Rum – Aqaba panoramic – Dead SeaDead Sea
Located at the lowest point on earth, the Dead Sea is around nine times saltier than the ocean. Though uninhabitable for fish and plants, the high mineral content of the water gives it healing properties, its rich mud is excellent for the skin and the salt’s natural buoyancy makes floating a unique experience.
