King Abdullah Mosque
King Abdullah Mosque One of Amman’s most distinctive landmarks, the King Abdullah Mosque and its enormous, azure-blue dome can be seen for miles across the city. The structure was built in 1989 by King Hussein in memory of his grandfather and is now one of the few mosques in Jordan that allows visitors of all religions, though it’s best to avoid midday prayers if you’re not Muslim. In sharp contrast to the modern, geometrically bold facade, the vast interior is deliberately plain and simple. Remove your shoes before entering, and women should cover their hair.
