This beautifully restored ancient second-century Roman amphitheatre that seats 6000 people is an easily accessible landmark. It was built back in the day when Amman was known as Philadelphia. Which is one of the three Roman structures in the neighborhood, the other two being the Odeon and the Nymphaeum. It is built facing the north so that spectators would not have to suffer the Sun. End the future remains in active use today, most prominently as the location of the city’s International book fair and the Al-Balad Music Festival.
The side entrances of the theater have Jordan Museum of Popular Tradition on one side and the Jordan Folklore Museum on the other. The former has a small collection of traditional costumes, jewelry, masks and mosaics; the latter was established in 1971 to showcase everyday Jordanian and Palestinian items such as handicraft, mosaics and musical instruments.
