    Buy coffee at the coffee shop in the entrance, cheap, and delicious. Of course, enjoy Citadel and admire Hercules Temple before.

    There is nice panoromic view to Amman. Old ruins reflects old Roman soul. You can find guide at entrance. You should bargain with them. You can hire them half price what they said.

    Jabal Al Qal’a is crowned by this grand relic, where the pillars of a Greco-Roman Temple of Hercules and the arches of an eighth-century Umayyad palace still overlook the city. Read more

    You can easily scale the southern wall for a free entrance. They guards are super nice and will let you stay after closing if you're with a friend who speaks Arabic.

    interesting site. Don't use the taxis from there to go back to the city, they are extremely expensive, they wanted to charge 20 JD for a 3JD trip.

    On clear nights this perfect star gazing spot will pleasantly surprise you. With ancient ruins decorating the entire area, the artifacts look even more splendid at night.

    At night, the view is spectacular. For a total of 360 degrees, all you see is the vast scenery of downtown Amman and distant mountains, which on its own, makes for a great view.

    Desde lo alto de la colina donde se encuentra puedes ver la enorme bandera de Jordania. Una maravilla que no hay que perderse.
