A big positive surprise and a highlight of our short visit in Amman.
A wonderful break from all the ancient ruins. It is a picturesque place, with several art galleries in separate buildings and views on the city. The exhibitions might not be thrilling, but the peaceful atmosphere and the lovely surroundings were definitely worth our time.

The lions left remaining in the structure are really neat to see, but you cannot actually enter the castle. The story of this building is quite interesting given its age and design, which differs from the Roman and umayyad era structures throughout the remainder of Jordan. Additionally, there are caves nearby from the same era and a small village where local women make nice ceramics and paper products. It's only about 30 minutes from Amman and the landscapes in this area are beautiful, especially in spring when the black iris is in bloom.

The current building standing just outside Amman in Wadi seer is the best example of Hellenistic architecture in Jordan. The interesting fact about it is that it was not built by the Greeks, rather by a Jewish family with ties to Jerusalem nobility.

its great to visit for a half day exploration from Amman, and especially so in springtime when the whole valley turns green.
