Amman, the capital of Jordan, is a modern city built around ancient ruins of the old town. Atop Jabal al-Qala’a Hill, the historic Citadel includes the pillars of the Roman Temple of Hercules and the 8th century Umayyad Palace complex, known for its grand dome. Within the Citadel, the Jordan Archaeological Museum exhibits locally excavated artifacts including the Neolithic 'Ain Ghazal statues, among the world’s oldest findings. The Jordan Museum is dedicated to the nation’s heritage, while works from contemporary artists are shown at the National Gallery of Fine Arts.
Built into a different downtown hillside, the Roman Theater, a stone amphitheater, has a capacity for 6000 people, and it dates back to the 2nd century and hosts various events. Another iconic site is the blue-domed King Abdullah I Mosque, featuring an ornate prayer hall. West of the city center, the Royal Automobile Museum showcases classic cars once owned by King Hussein.
