Sam's Exotic Travels to the Citadel of Amman, Jordan
Jabal al-Qal'a, also called The Citadel of Amman is a national historic site in Eastern Amman. The L-shaped hill is one of the seven that originally made up Amman. Evidence of occupation since the pottery Neolithic period has been found, making it among the world's oldest continuously inhabited places.
The Amman Citadel's history represents significant civilizations that stretched across continents and prospered for centuries, as one empire gave rise to the next. It also symbolizes the birth of the three great monotheistic religions - Judaism, Christianity and Islam. A great part of the Citadel remains unexcavated.
The Amman Citadel is also the site of Jordan Archaeological Museum, which is home to a collection of these artifacts as well as objects from other Jordanian historic sites.
