Amman

Overview

Amman is the capital of Jordan's Hashemite Kingdom and the Amman Governorate. With a population of about 4,061,150 as of 2021, it was the largest city in the Kingdom and one of the major Arab cities in terms of population. Its rapid population growth has made it one of the cities with the highest rates of urbanisation worldwide. There are 74 named mountains in Amman. The highest and most prominent mountain is Um Hulaylifah.

 

The capital and largest city of Jordan is Amman, which also serves as its financial, political, and cultural hub.

 

Amman is regarded as one of the world's oldest inhabited towns because its history extends back to the seventh millennium BC. Amman is an old city founded on the ruins of a city known as "Rabbath Ammon," later "Philadelphia," and lastly "Amman," a modification of "Rabbath Ammon," which became the capital of the Ammonites. The city was built on seven hills and appears to have been the heart of the region at the time. It is one of the four Levantine capitals. It is also one of the old Levantine cities that became the capital of the Emirate of Transjordan and later the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan after Jordan's independence from Britain in 1946.

 

Amman received around 3.6 million visitors in 2022, ranking it as the 64th most-visited city in the world and the 8th most-visited Arab city. The Globalization and World Cities Research Network rates Amman as a beta global city due to its relatively quick economic growth. In addition, it was recognised as one of the best cities in the Middle East and North Africa in terms of economic, labour, environmental, and sociocultural aspects. The city, along with Doha, is one of the most attractive places in the Arab world for international firms to establish regional headquarters.
