Jordan is an Arab kingdom in Western Asia, on the East Bank of the River Jordan, and extending into the historic region of Palestine. Jordan borders Saudi Arabia to the south and east, Iraq to the north-east, Syria to the north, Palestine and Israel to the west, sharing control of the Dead Sea with the latter.

Did you know that:
1. It is widely believed that Mount Nebo in Jordan is the burial place of Moses.
2. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, the city of Petra was literally carved into rock 2000 years ago. It was only in the 19th century that the Western world got to know of it. This city has to be entered through a narrow gorge that is only 1.25 km wide.
3. The Dead Sea or the Salt Lake in Jordan is the earth’s lowest point and lies 402 meters below mean sea level. It has one of the most spiritual and breathtaking landscapes on the planet.
4. It is considered polite to refuse a meal three times here before actually accepting it.
5. Almost every single building in Amman is made of stone or concrete and clad with thin, white limestone slabs. Thus there really are no landmarks and every building looks almost identical.
