Amman, the modern and ancient capital of Jordan, is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the World.

The King Abdullah Mosque was built between 1982 and 1986 as a memorial to the late King Hussein’s Grandfather, His Majesty As-Sayyid Abdullah I, King of Jordan. The mosque is capped by a magnificent blue mosaic dome, beneath which 3,000 Muslims can offer prayer at any one time.

Located inside the mosque is the Islamic Museum, with a collection of pottery and photographs of His Majesty King Abdullah I.
