This ancient Roman structure built in the second century, close to the Amphitheater and the Odeon, is a partially preserved public fountain. Public fountains used to be a very important part of Roman city life. Right now, the structure is undergoing slow but meticulous restoration led by students from the University of Jordan and the Hashemite University. In its heyday it must have been quite a sight, with water, mosaics, carvings, and a huge swimming pool. There's technically not much to see here, but there are lot of photography opportunities, especially at sunset.

  • Partially preserved Roman public fountain in Amman, close to the down-town Mosque. Built 2nd century CE. More than worth a visit, and you don't need more than 15-30'. Some info plaques on site (English-Arabic). Free admission, but with opening hours. Photo-opps people: often there are few people around, with a little wait you can have the place to yourselves.

  • A must do for everyone visiting Amman! Loved this place so much. 💜

  • Nice view great history old but young♥️♥️♥️♥️

  • As of September 2018, the place is closed for renovations and no entrance allowed from all sides. One can still take pictures of the archaeological site from its front, but entrance is not allowed.

  • Surrounded by busy streets. Even with its historical value, there's not much to see
