Jordan's main attractions
Jerash (national park) is one of the most preserved Roman cities in the Middle East. With its oval piazza and well preserved colonnaded streets etched by the wheels of ancient chariots, and its massive theatre, it is as impressive today as it was 2000 years ago.
Petra, the majestic red city, lies south of Jordan. Its entrance is through a long, narrow gorge known as the Siq. It can only be accessed by carriage, horseback, or on foot. Once inside the city, the magnificent details of a city cut and built into the cliff sides will dazzle your imagination. The rose-colored Treasury, and the Monastery, are some of its other attractions.
Madaba is mostly famous for its intricate and historically critical mosaics. Its main value lies in the 6th-century mosaic map on the floor of the Church of Saint George. This Byzantine map shows Jerusalem and other holy sites.
Tradition holds that it is the location where Moses viewed the Promised Land (Deut. 34) and was interred. On a clear day, you can see the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea. You can also see Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
The Dead Sea
Jordan's Dead Sea Resort hotels offer exquisite spa services and excellent food choices.
Wadi Rum, also known as the Valley of the Moon in Arabic, is a valley cut into the sandstone and granite rock in southern Jordan 37 miles (60 km) to the east of Aqaba. It is a protected valley, named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011.
Wadi Rum was inhabited by many civilizations since prehistoric times, including the Nabataeans, who left petroglyphs, inscriptions, and their temple. In modern history, Wadi Rum is known for its connection with British officer T. E. Lawrence, who passed through several times during the Arab Revolt of 1917–18.
