Amman - Jordan

Dead Sea


Amman, more than 2 million inhabitants, from 750 m to 1000 m of altitude, is the surprising capital Hachemit kingdom. It never seems not to want to stop growing. Day by day, its residential suburbs, extend ad infinitum, overflowing on the desert. The wide opulent avenues, the spaced out houses with tiled roofs conjure up not very much the Orient. In 1921, when the emir Abdallah chooses it for capital, there was only a small Circassian village of 6000 inhabitants. In 1947, there were yet only 60 000 inhabitants. It is its role of capital, and the influx of the Palestinian refugees in 1948 that are at the origin of this extraordinary development.
