Amman Citadel

Interesting
Opposite the Roman theatre stood the citadel, or Jebel al-Qalaal, which throughout the first millennium AD kept watch from behind its ramparts over the population of Philadelphia (the city's name at that time). Of this fortified city, there remain vestiges of its outer walls, atemple of Hercules built in the 3C, aByzantine church and an 8CUmayyad palace . Next to the temple, theAmman archaeological museum is invaluable in helping visitors develop a better understanding of the country.
