    It is the second mosque in the q I've been and the truth that by 2 JD would include it in the places to visit in Jordan is enters a store q provide a robe if you're not wearing proper apparel and then you can freely visit interesting

    In a country like Jordan includes a visit to a mosque. I had already read, but what about our taxi driver recognized that the Blue Mosque was the only one, where you could go in there as a tourist. You don't have to take account of clothing, since one for both men and women dress appropriately, which is free of charge. What has stuck with me the most is the kindness of the people there. The mosque on the outside is beautiful. On the inside not very special. You start and ends in a souvenir shop. Also there is one felt nice and tea offered afterwards. Too bad everything was extremely expensive (part went to the charity is what it was narrated). A visit to this mosque is definitely worth it.

    It is one of the largest mosques you can find in Amman . The greatest thing is there is no pillars separating the rows.

Where to stay in Amman

Amman accommodations sit at all points on the spectrum, and you'd expect nothing less from a capital as diverse and eclectic as this. The more budget-friendly options, in the form of simple hotels, guesthouses, and hostels, lie predominantly in the downtown area, with the narrow, maze-like streets housing countless accommodations around each corner and over each hill. If you're looking for something a little more luxurious and with calmer surroundings, then the business districts to the northeast represent the best places to look, with high-rise chain hotels jostling for position along the main shopping streets and next to scenic parks and plazas.
