The Temple of Hecules, The Citadel, Amman, Jordan

Overlooking the City of Amman The Citadel was at the top of the list of places to visit during a recent trip to Jordan. It didn't disappoint with commanding views over the bustling city. Skyscapers on the near horizon competed for attention with a giant Jordanian flag whilst amongst neighbouring housing the distinctive shape of the Colosseum is clearly seen. Dominating the site are the impresive columns of the Temple of Hercules with the only two remaining pieces of a giant statue of Hecules lying nearby.
