About the country

Jordan is a fascinating country simply because of its geographical location; it is bordered by Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Israel and spans the Holy Lands of the world's three major religions.

Amman is Jordan's capital and one of the world's best-preserved cities, dating back 7,000 years. Amman is a massive, busy, and intriguing city that was originally known as Philadelphia, after Ptolemy Philadelphus (Cleopatra's son), who rebuilt the city before it was seized by Herod about 30 BC and handed to the Romans.

Petra, Jordan's most famous tourist destination, is a historical and archaeological city in the south. It is also known as the Rose City because of the color of the stone, and it features a stunning main entrance at the end of a meandering stone hallway.

The Dana Biosphere Reserve is Jordan's biggest environmental reserve, including about 320 square kilometers (124 square miles) of mountains and valleys. It is one of the greatest sites in the world to stargaze, as well as is home to flora and animals from Africa, Asia, and Europe.

Jordan has the benefit of having cuisine influences from all of the Middle Eastern nations because it is landlocked by several of them. Jordanian cuisine and its numerous varieties may thus be found throughout the Middle East and are likely to have originated in nations such as Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, or elsewhere in the Mediterranean. Jordanian gastronomy is mostly comparable to Lebanese, including classic Middle Eastern / Mediterranean components such as garlic, lemon, olive oil, and hummus.

Sri Lankan passport holders require a valid visa to enter Jordan.
