Wherever you go in the Middle East, you will feel that you still need to visit this wonderful country of Jordan. This well-known country is considered to be one of the most important countries in the Middle East, as it is located in the middle of the world. Because of its geographic location, Jordan played a vital role as a conduit for trade and communications, connecting east and west, north and south.
The kingdom of Jordan has many places to visit such as the well-known site of Petra, which was thought to have been first established in the 6th century BC by Nabataean Arabs, a nomadic tribe who settled in the area and laid the foundations of a commercial empire that extended into Syria. Despite successive attempts by the Seleucid king Antigonus, the Roman emperor Pompey and Herod the Great to bring Petra under the control of their respective empires, Petra remained largely in Nabataean hands until around 100 AD, when the Romans diverted to the north the caravan routes that had brought Petra its wealth.
You still have enough time to go around the city of Amman, Jordan’s capital, safe, friendly, and modern city. The old city is dominated by the ancient Citadel with its Byzantine Church, The Temple of Hercules and The Umayyad Palace. Amman was known in the Old Testament as Rabbath Ammon and in Greco-Roman times as Philadelphia. You will also visit the Amphitheater and the Archaeological & Jordan Folklore Museums.
