Towering over the Amman Citadel is the historic Temple of Hercules, built in the same period as the Roman amphitheater, between 162 and 166 AD. It’s one of the most significant Roman structures in the region, containing an impressive hand-carved stone resembling the hand of Hercules.

Tips / Destination

Amman is a wonderful city that boasts equal opportunities for luxury dining experiences and affordable eats. If you’re visiting on a budget, these are a few of the restaurants you probably want to sample.


Habibah Sweets is the best place in the city for Middle Eastern treats. The sweets shop is famous for its delicious knafeh, but also boasts an impressive array of sweet honey and cheese. The restaurant also offers plenty of European and Asian treats, too, like warbat and baklava.


There’s only one option for food at Al-Quds, but what they do, they do extremely well. The restaurant is known throughout the region for scrumptious falafel sandwiches. Made with yeast bread rolls and pressed like a panini, these delectable meals are only 55 cents!


Gaith is the perfect spot for traditional Jordanian food that isn’t packed with tourists. Locals love the delicious tabbouleh, aubergine and shish taouk served here, and all of it is at an extremely reasonable price. The atmosphere is casual and typically quiet, though don’t expect many English speakers here.


Shawarma Zarb boasts the best of its namesake in the entire city. The meat is always tender, staff friendly and happy to chat, and it’s a truly authentic experience every time. The décor is made up of railway wood and stools, and everything is made on site. Few places are more traditional than this, and it’s a must when in town.
