Amman is the capital city of Jordan, a West Asia Arab kingdom, while it is often less traveled when compared to other Middle East heavyweights such as Damascus, Cairo, and Aleppo; Amman offers a unique striking balance between Arab tradition and a modern setting. Western Amman is inundated with stylish cafés, malls, bars and ultra-modern commercial centers forming the hub of Amman's wealth. Zahran Street separates the west of Amman from the Eastern Amman; a town that is deeply rooted in traditional Jordanian cultural heritage. Famous Romanesque structures such as Umayyad Palace, Temple of Hercules and the Odeon Amphitheatre grace the town's landscape. On the hillside lies the majestic Darat Al Funun which is a haven for contemporary art adorned with excellent works by Jordanian and other Arab artists.
