Site Highlights

Amman

 One of the oldest inhabited cities around the world, Amman is truly magical. The impressive seven hills of Amman have created ways to about twenty making it the easiest cities in which one can enjoy the best of Middle East experiences. Besides the urban side of Amman there are various other factors that attract visitors towards it such as a Byzantine church ruin in a busy shopping district, the ruins of an Ammonite fortress tower from the windows of a hotel and much more. Downtown Amman is yet another amazing thing about Amman! At the bottom of many hills of the city you can find outstanding Roman ruins, an international standard museum and the hullabaloo of mosques, souks and coffeehouses that are fundamental parts of a Jordanian life.

 In around 1200 BC Amman turned out to be the capital of the Iron Age Ammonites, the biblical Hebrew Rabbath Ammon. It is also the ancient Greek Philadelphia and is the capital and largest city of Jordan today.

Petra - The Pink City

 Petra, the capital of the Nabataean Arabs is one of the most renowned archaeological sites in the world that is located 240 km south of the capital Amman and 120 km north of the Red Sea town of Aqaba. Petra is also one among the wonders of the world and hence is the most valuable treasure and ultimate tourist spot in Jordan. There is no precise information when Petra was built but it is known that the city began to prosper as the capital of the Nabataean Empire from the 1st century BC that grew rich through trade in frankincense, myrrh, and spices

Wadi Rum – The Valley of the Moon

 Wadi Rum is a valley that is cut into the sandstone and granite rock in southern Jordan 60 km to the east of Aqaba. It is the largest Wadi in Jordan. The term ‘Rum’ originates from an Aramaic root that means ‘high’ or ‘elevated’.

Gulf of Aqaba - The Red Sea

 Aqaba, the seaside town is located on the Red Sea within the sight of Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Although Jordan has only 26 kilometers of coastline but they are put to good use. Below the Red Sea waters you will find some of the most fantastic dive sites in the world.  Aqaba is also known as a base camp for travelers wishing to see Wadi Rum and Petra.

The Dead Sea

 The Dead Sea is located in the Jordan Valley which is a part of the Great Rift Valley that runs from East Africa to Turkey. The Dead Sea is the remains of a giant inland lake named Lake Lisan which was 200 kilometers long and about 200 meters deeper than that of the current level of the Dead Sea. As the Lake Lisan contracted, Lake Tiberias and the Dead Sea were left behind which are at 408 meters below sea level (and is the lowest point on the earth).

 The sea contains about 20% of salt which is eight times the level of the world’s oceans. And this concentration contributes to the amazing buoyancy of the water and is a legacy of years of evaporation. The only life forms available in the Dead Sea are the eleven species of bacteria. As the water is rich in minerals, including calcium, magnesium, bromine, iodine, and bitumen, it provides various healing properties that help in alleviating or easing allergies, skin rashes, bronchial irritations or glandular conditions. Tourists from all over the world come here to ease or cure their conditions at the medical treatment centers at the Dead Sea. And even people who feel stressed and bored can enjoy the high quality spas in the area. Due to the depth of this location the climate and quality of sunshine in the Dead Sea area is highly beneficial and the salts and mud of Dead are well known for their beneficial properties.

Jerash - Gerasa

 One of the best preserved Roman era cities in the world, Jerash is located 40 kilometers towards north of Amman. Even today visitors can trace the chariot ruts on the Cardo! Besides that one can admire the mosaics laid contemporaneously to those found in Madaba as well as test the acoustics of the North and South Theatres. Jerash came into fame as one of the largest cities in the Decapolis Federation.

Madaba City and Churches

 The fertile plains of Madaba made it a strategic location for almost 3500 years. Many peoples fought over it during different times and later it became a Nabataean town. The city then became a bishopric and the mosaics during the Byzantine era which made are famous. At present the city is still famous for the mosaics both historical and for its mosaic school, the only one of its kind in the entire Middle East.

Ajloun Castle

 One of the greatest examples of the Islamic Ayyubid military architecture, Ajloun Castle was built atop Mt ‘Auf (1250meters) between 1184 and 1188 by one of Saladin’s generals, ‘Izz ad Din Usama bin Munqidh. From the castle one can enjoy the views of the Jordan Valley and three wadis leading into it.

Mount Nebo

 An elevated ridge in Jordan, Mount Nebo is approximately 710 meters i.e. 2,330 feet above sea level. It is also mentioned in the Hebrew Bible as the place where Moses was granted a view of Promised Land. From the peak of Mount Nebo you can get a panoramic view of the Holy Land and one of the valleys of the River Jordan to the north. When the days are clear one can also view the West Bank city of Jericho as well as Jerusalem from the summit.

Dana Natural Reserve

 One of the best known nature reserves in Jordan, Dana Natural Reserve was set up in 1993 and became an exemplar of how to set up a sustainable and eco­friendly reserve. The network of guided and unguided hiking trails, campground, guesthouse and eco-lodge, dramatic wadis and scenic mountains dropping about 1600 meters from the highest point make Dana one of the most popular tourist spots in Jordan. Then there is the Nabatean tomb and the sea urchin fossils adding to its beauty. Also the mushroom shaped rock formations create captivating scenes. All these and more makes it a place of appreciation among the visitors.

The Baptism Site

 After the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Church of the Nativity, the Baptism site is third most holy site for Christians all over the world. This is the site where Jesus Christ got baptized. In Arabic this place is also known as Al-Maghtas. When after the 1994 peace treaty excavations were done at Wadi Kharrar evidences were found that a complex of churches, hermit cells and other buildings described in the writings of many pilgrims who have visited the site since the 2nd century AD exists here. And now the site has been preserved as a tourist destination and attracts tourists year round.
