What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - YALLA! -

What’s the deal? Jor­dan’s cap­i­tal city of Amman is steeped in cen­turies of his­tory, from the an­cient Ro­man and Byzan­tine ru­ins to the strik­ing Tem­ple Of Her­cules. The lat­ter is a series of pil­lars that ar­chae­ol­o­gists be­lieve were part of a tem­ple that was never fin­ished when built in AD162 to AD166. A deal with Dnata Travel al­lows you to make the most of your time here – not only do you get re­turn flights with FlyDubai and a three-night stay in a five-star ho­tel, but it also in­cludes a tour of the Dead Sea and if you book a Grand Room at the Grand Hy­att, you’ll get an ex­tra 15 per cent dis­count of your room rate and a free up­grade. How much? Dhs3,049 per per­son, valid June 8 to 15. While you’re there: Amman boasts Is­lamic ar­chi­tec­ture span­ning from an­cient times to the mod­ern age. Go see the King Hus­sein Mosque – the Ot­toman-style con­struc­tion was re­built in 1932 over the site of an an­cient mosque from AD640.
