This is a street in Jabal Amman which maintains the heritage of the place for an extent. There are many shops and restaurants in the street. There are also many beautiful old and traditional houses and building. Also in the warm months of the year, there is and open market where you can find many traditional and hand made stuff.... More

I like going there to walk and then have my dinner. Sadly, Most places offer argeeleh and allow smoking so enjoying dinners in a smoke free environment is not a valid option. Nevertheless, it is a nice street to stroll at evenings.
