6 Reasons to visit Jordan during summer.

With the holiday business in the middle-east receding, people are yet to realize the historical and architectural significance of spectacular places as Jordan itself. The silence of the desert and the sparseness of its extraordinary monuments only adds to the appeal. The most fascinating thing about this country in the Arabian Peninsula is that although largely being influenced with Arabic culture, Jordan has revealed ancient Roman vestiges, Persian paragons, poignant Ottoman enchantments and medieval Egyptian relics belonging to departed empires. Here are six otherworldly sites that are reasons to visit Jordan immediately.


The ruins of Petra are a popular Jordan piece de resistance that you are unlikely to find anywhere else in the country. Sitting amongst the rose tinged desert cliffs are the stone carved treasures and synagogues whose foundations were laid somewhere in the early fourth century BC. Petra has been an eccentric shooting site for major chartbusters such as Indiana Jones and the principal city of the prosperous Nabataean civilization.


The very ancient city of Madaba known for the Madaba Map, a pulsating blend of mosaic representation of the town from the 6th Century. The city lies between dusty hills on the rim of the King’s Highway knitting through decades of Jordan’s hearty history. From the sky, Madaba is an amalgamation of gold domed masjids, jagged minarets and exotic biblical knolls overlooking the Jordan Valley and the gorgeous Dead Sea.

The capital city and the urban metropolitan of Jordan; Amman, is home to the escalating nightlife acts and the downtown zones bustling with joyous people. Ancient and contemporary art comes to life together in the streets of Amman, a firsthand experience of the Arabic Jordan values and Bedouin culture. The animated city is the hub of frenzied souks and bazaars to chic boutiques and high-end bistros. There is a cluster of eye-candy to be spotted in Amman, namely the enormous Roman Theatre, mosques of Balad and what is left of Ammonite barricades.


The epic specimen of utter wealth and subversive history is the crumbling town of Jerash few miles north of Amman. It attracts just as many eyes as the exotic rocks of Petra, this medley of ageless porticos have over the time dated into Byzantine cathedrals and impressive piazzas mark Jerash, the best city of the ancient Roman Empire to this date.

Wadi Rum

The glamorous Jordanian valley that glows in shades of a deep ginger and red under the blazing Arabian sun, Wadi Rum symbols as one the most intriguing natural phenomena of the Aqaba city. Intricately carved on auburn granite that escalates and plummets radically onto the eastern perimeters of Aqaba, the Wadi Rum is an exemplary monument of Jordan’s countryside. Camel rides, hoodoo relics and cult practices, Nabatean petroglyphs looming on the rock walls and pleasing sunsets are all include in the package. From steep caverns with interesting prehistoric inscriptions and the innate watering chasm of the Lawrence’s spring, the valley is filled with a summer of surprises.

Dead Sea

Last but not the least, the Dead Sea brimming the borders of Israel at the West Bank of the Jordanian archipelago is a salt lake about four hundred meters under sea level. It is undoubtedly the nethermost point on the country’s dry-land whose waters are illustrious for floating sports. Whereas, the black mud thick with minerals is used for cosmetic healings.
