Citadel Mound Amman

 

Rabbath Ammon

 
 

 

The old city (Rabbath Ammon), capital city of the Ammonites, is centred around the Citadel Mound, where can still be seen The Roman Temple of Herakles, an Early Christian Chapel, Byzantine Church, the Umayyad Palace, and the ruins of the Umayyad Settlement, along with the Archaeological Museum. Set in the natural depression below the mound, which is part of the Great Rift Valley, is the well preserved Roman Amphitheatre, which is still used for live performances.
