    Interesting area of Amman pretty much requalified and made more youngsters friendly. We decided to spend an evening strolling around after reading its beauties on our Lonely Planet but we have been a bit disappointed, maybe we expected too much

    Such a beautiful and unexpected surprise! This mosque is open to non-Muslims. The staff has been very kind and the mosque itself is really worth a visit. It’s huge and I recommend to visit early when not crowded

    Nice street for walk. There are shops, restaurants and cafes. It’s nice at night, and it’s family oriented kind of place.
    I went a bit early in the evening and was pretty empty, maybe people go there late at night. If you’re in Amman and have time it’s worth checking out.

    It’s a nice mosque, especially outside. I went inside, but it wasn’t that impressive.
    Women can’t go into the main areas. And it’s crowded during the prayer times.

    We turned to Naje to get the most authentic experience; and he delivered this and more!

    We were able to describe the experiences we were looking for native to Jordan and the Jordanian people, and Naje was able to tap into exactly what we needed see and experience.

    We learned about the city or Amman, took exiting and native drives to excellent restaurants, and experience food with Bedouins, and other cafe's and eateries. His tours for us included such interesting places that most don't know about in Jordan. In Petra he helped us make unusual accommodations to tour both via horse and via golf cart. He is able to assess well to what we needed, and it made our entire experience a most memorable one.

    Naje is also professional and trustworthy, and goes above an beyond. He even went out of his way to bring my husband a coat to use on our last day's tour as it was getting colder.

    We highly recommend, and can't wait to book more tours with Naje / Lilias Tours!

    I frequented Jadal during my stay in Amman for a number of reasons: firstly, off-the-beaten-path, the cafe is quiet, and escapes the noise of the centre of the city;

    as an anti-cafe, you never spend more than 3.5JD, making it affordable, excellent value for money;

    the cafe is very conscientious, with a garden and a recycling scheme, making it one of the greener places in Amman, for sure;

    the staff are incredible, they are so friendly and kind, always keen for a chat, they know everyone, and are really great people to know whilst in Jordan;

    the drinks are unreal (do yourself a favour and get the iced hibiscus);

    the outdoor space gets a nice amount of sun, but provides plenty of shade if you are working, and there are also indoor spaces for when it is too hot to be outdoors;

    They have a number of events on, for everybody to attend;

    They have excellent wifi, and plugs all around, making it a great place to study.

    This is, without a doubt, my favourite spot in Amman, and I cannot recommend it enough.

    It is a bit in the middle of nowhere! No signs and a bit hard to get to! I was not expecting much but when arrived, two very welcoming men were on the gate, entry is free of charge, very nice castle and easy to reach! I would only recommend to clean more the dirts but overall good experience

    Dropped by during mid-day prayers to experience the culture and devotion of the people. Was able to remove my shoes and observe from an outer courtyard. Located in the busy downtown market area of Amman.

    Advertised as the oldest building in downtown Amman, in Arabic, diwan means the section of the house whose doors are always open to guests. Built in 1924 as the Central Post Office and later used by the Haifa Hotel, it now hosts literary and artistic events. We must have found this place on Atlas Obsurca, because it was pretty random. We had a great time - minus the coffee, skip that - and enjoyed the 30 minutes we spent here.

    I passed by here twice but it seemed to be closed for the public as it is completely fenced off. Yes, i could only stare through the fence and did not learn anything about the place but i believe it was a public fountain..

    As you leave Audience Hall and Throne Room turn left and follow a narrow passage you come our facing huge circular well like structure built in the ground. Looked really impressive as a water storage tank. The ides of "rain harvesting " and the capacoty, "water proof plaster" WOW ! Mind boggling.
    This is what the information board displayed next to it has to say about the open Cistern.
    " Open Cistern. "Birka".
    Ca 730 AD.
    This uncovered cistern referred to as "Birka" or "Shrij" in Arabic, measures 58 feet in diameter and its stone walls are up to 8 feet thick. The interior surface was covered with waterproof layer of plaster, and you can see traces of this ancient layer near staircase. The sloped floor collected unwanted silt at the bottom.
    Up to 48000 cubic feet of water could be collected in the cistern. It was diverted there from roofs of surrounding buildings and paved surfaces through channels feeding in to it from north and west side of the cistern. A column in the center measured water level. The cistern supplied water to baths, latrines and other areas of settlement. Located part way up the cistern wall, a hole leads to a shaft that discharges water through east fortification wall."
