The modern and ancient capital of Jordan, formerly the ammonite capital city of Rabbath-Ammon and later the Greco-Roman city named Philadelphia, originally spread over seven hills, Amman now covers at least nineteen hills.

It is a city of contrasts and a mixture of ancient and modern, the city is crowned by The Citadel, hills with ruins of the temple of Hercules, the Roman Theater, and a museum with artifacts dating back to the earliest settlement in the region, some 700,000 years ago
