that panorama of old identical houses on the cliff of the hills with an ancient Roman amphitheatre as the center piece
is the identical mark of the city which is one of the oldest continously inhabited cities in the world.
Likewise, Amman is not without a cluster of modern buildings which keeps on growing and expanding.
Lovely city indeed.
