Places to visit in Jordan

The capital is Amman.

Its currency is the Jordanian Dinar. Regarding the climate, Jordan is characterized above all by having an arid desert climate with a season of rains in the west from November to April. Amman is a city with a long history. It is known in the Bible as Rabbath-Ammon. It has many attractions, including the Roman amphitheater, the headquarters of the Museum of Cultural Folklore and the Museum of Popular Traditions, the Archaeological Museum, which houses some of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the ruins of the Citadel.

Aside from the ruins and history, King Abdullah Mosque and Husseini Grand Mosque are two perfect Muslim shrines where you can take more than one photo.
