About
Founded in 1998, Dar Al-Anda is housed in two historic villas, originally built in Amman’s fabled Jabal Al-Weibdeh in the 1930’s. Whether you’re looking for fine art or simply looking to travel back in time through breathtaking views of Old Amman’s several rolling hills, as well as Roman and Ottoman ruins such as The Citadel and the Arc of Hercules, Dar Al-Anda is a quintessential cultural stop for first-time and returning visitors to Amman.

The place is artistic, the art is beautiful, the view is nice of amman old city. I love the section of artistic fashion and home decoration where it is reasonably priced. Worth a visit for art collectors.

Ancient home with contemporary art
Mar 2018 • Friends
Dar al Anda is the product of a vivacious young woman whose aim is as much to help artists as to have a successful gallery.
Majdoline Ghzeiwi al Ghoul is the owner of this gallery. In a previous venue, she had a high end café/tea house that accompanied the gallery and which was a venue of musical performances by refugee Iraqi musicians who entertained the Jordanian public.
In this newer venue, Majdouline acquired properties of big families who lived in the area in the 50s. Terraces overlooking the valley where stretches the marketplace and other hills studded with houses stand as picturesque memorabilia. The stone house with traditional windows and marvellous terrazzo pavements inside, houses a constantly changing, rich collection of paintings and sculptures.
Little elegant armchairs give this ancient place even more warmth while the contemporary art pieces flail their colours and expression.
In the lower house, Majdoline opens up art courses for the children of the mountain, mostly coming from low income homes.
This a place with heart, a place with soul.
majdoline’s Own house towers over her gallery. It boasts some of the best art collections in the country, and an unbeatable view of old Amman.
Advice: this visit could be joined with a visit of Darat al Funun, nearby.
If you follow the road and go up left, you will come across the most interesting traditional restaurants for a wholesome dinner.

Great Location

We tracked this art gallery down and after climbing about 100 stairs found it on a street overlooking a valley in Amman. The gallery is set down away from the street and is a very nice quiet space. If you are looking for some Jordanian or Palestinian art then this is a great place to go. the staff were very friendly and showed us some very interesting works. At our tie of visiting they were between shows but still had plenty of art to show us.

Beautiful low profile art gallery
Mar 2018 • Solo
This is an art gallery in Jabal Al- Weibdeh not far from Darat Al Funun.

Located in a strategic spot and within an old villa, it offers a calm nice view of Amman, in addition to a very dynamic show room.

They host artwork of all kinds, promote it, and help the artist sell pieces. There is also a shop in the floor beneath.

A must see for arts lovers. However, I really think they should advertise for the events in a more effective way using press and social media, I always go there to explore what’s happening never knowing in advance what is going on.

Highly recommended!

Hammams of Yemen photographic exhibition
Sep 2017 • Solo
I’ve visited Dar Al-Anda Art Gallery in Amman on the last day of very special photography exhibition of National Geographic featured documentary photographer Agnes Montanari - Hammams of Yemen - Sana'a's Underworld - with a collection of intimate photographs of one of the places in the world that is very hard or even impossible now to visit.
Gallery is well known place to get by taxi - located at Jabal Lweibedeh, old villa on one of the Amman’s hills with beautiful view on the city and Citadel.
Gallery has a small art shop with local art, and whole place has its own charm.
Very nice and calm place, especially in late afternoon hours close to sunset – light is beautiful for photography.
