  • Nice, intriguing and original. Figures in the rock. Huge Lions. Place suggestive, but not easy to achieve. Don't try it yourself. Better to rely on a taxi driver expert. Out of town. If you have time still to be spent in Amman, otherwise ... forget it!

  • The site is not easy to find, let him indicate good away, and has just a few kilometres from Amman exiting westward. Very impressive in a bucolic context unfortunately disfigured by ugly modern buildings here and there. The particularity of Qasr al-Abd are its figures of animals, mostly lions, and the enormous stone blocks with which it is built.

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.
