The well-known origins of the city go back to the biblical age, where the city was known as Rabbah. After the conquest by Alexander the Great, this name was changed to Philadelphia, which also existed during the occupation by the Seljuks and later by the Romans. Philadelphia, as one of the ten cities of the Roman Empire in the East, was a member of the so-called Decapolis. Many of the city's sights, such as the massive ruins of the citadel, which are still preserved today, date from this heyday.

Today the city is also known as "the White City", due to its numerous white houses, some of which are still whitewashed and isolated according to traditional customs.

There is hardly any other city in the Arab world where you will encounter a greater diversity of cultural influences, people of different origins and beliefs, as well as ways of life. Amman is a modern melting pot, a city with a great history, where traditions are still alive today. Embark on an exciting journey of discovery!
