Jordan’s Latest Domestic Tourism Program “Urdun Jannah” Aims To Create New Musical Performances and Bazaars

More than 100,000 tourists, religious, and archaeological sites can be found in Jordan, to name a few, Petra, the Dead Sea, Wadi Rum, and Jerash. Jordan is a wonderful vacation destination filled with history, culture and adventure. The “Urdun Jannah” domestic tourism program by the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and the Jordan Tourism Board involves a number of activities, including musical performances and bazaars at various tourist and archaeological sites throughout the Kingdom to boost tourism. The events started last week and are scheduled to go through Sept. 30. According to Zawya, the ministry announced that tours would be planned for people who want to attend events with free admission and visit tourist spots at the same time. On both Android and iOS, the Jannah.jo app offers services for online payment, booking, and inquiry.

Souk el-Bukharia Market

When you enter Souk EL Boukharieh, one of the oldest markets in Amman, you can sense the blending of ancient and new cultures. All of the stores are embellished with lovely things, including ceramic antiques, vintage home objects made of bamboo and clay, tambourines, ouds, and rababahs. The unique neighborly relationship between the store owners, which they inherited from their parents and grandparents, is what makes the Souk so distinctive.

Mujib Nature Reserve

This enormous region north-west of Jordan offers some truly breath-taking views complete with river valleys, steep-sided valleys that have been shaped through the years, and various secret passageways carved out of the rocks. It dips gradually down to the salty waters of the Dead Sea, earning it the title of lowest natural reserve in the world. Today, adventure travellers and outdoor enthusiasts have fully taken over, offering anything from strenuous hikes to heart-pounding rock climbing in gorges to zip-lining through the dry, dusty air.

Madaba

The historic center of Jordan, the dry desert hills, and the old city of Madaba are all connected by the renowned King’s Highway. The town, which is dominated by its magnificent, gold-gilded mosque is home to some stunning Umayyad-era mosaics. In addition to the numerous Roman ruins in the area, the Orthodox Saint George Cathedral chapels also include magnificent Byzantine artwork. Additionally, in the Ottoman houses along the main streets, you can also sample spice-packed Jordanian mezze and smoky shisha!

Petra

The unquestionable crown jewel of Jordan is a location completely unique to the rest of the nation. The site, which is located in the southern heartland of the nation between two red-hued desert slopes, is believed to have been inhabited for the first time in the 4th century BC. It served as the original center of the booming Arabian Nabataean civilization, which was able to transform this area’s rock-cut temples and treasury into one of the most significant commerce hubs in the area. The entire magical location is now famous for its parts in Hollywood blockbusters like Indiana Jones, and it is tucked away within a network of tunnels formed by erosion that are a wonderful joy to explore.

Jerash

The fact Jerash, a city in the north of Amman, attracts almost as many tourists as Petra’s famed rock-cut temples. This is a testament to the tremendous depth of immersing history that still exists there. Yes, it’s said that this collection of soaring colonnades, ancient forums, intriguing temples that have been converted into Byzantine churches, and large plazas is the most amazing Roman provincial city that is still standing today.
