Jordan has a rich history; its location in the central Middle East has long made it an appreciated possession. During its long history, Jordan has seen numerous civilizations, including ancient eastern civilizations the Sumerian, Acadian, Israelite, Babylonian, Assyrian, Mesopotamian and Persian empires. There are many charming buildings in Petra, cut from stone of the rock cliffs like the Monastery, The Urn Tomb, & the treasury.

It’s surely a distinctive practice to be visiting the ancient city that had possibly been mentioned in the lifeless Sea Scrolls as the city of Rekem. Anyway, Petra is an unbelievable attainment of ancient human civilization in the area. Administratively, Jordan is divided into 12 provinces called governorates, each headed by a governor appointed by the king.

They are the sole authorities for all government departments and development projects in their respective areas. The official verbal communication is Arabic, but English is used broadly in export and government and among educated people. Arabic and English are necessary learning at public and private schools. French is educated at some public and private schools but is not obligatory. However, a vivacious Francophone society has emerged in modern Jordan. Radio Jordan offers radio services in Arabic, English and French.

Jordan’s continuing structural financial difficulties, growing population, and more open political surroundings led to the surfacing of a mixture of political parties. Moving toward greater independence, Jordan’s parliament has investigated corruption charges against several regime figures and has become the major forum in which differing political views, including those of political Islamists, are expressed. While King Abdullah remains the ultimate authority in Jordan, the parliament plays an important role.

The huge rocks are multicolored, typically pink, and the entrance to the ancient city is through a 1.25 km narrow gorge in the mountain – called the Siq. In the city are a variety of structures, all are imprinted into rock, together with al Khazneh – known as the Treasury – which has been elected as one of the “New Seven Wonders of the World” by the trade New Open World firm.

Jordan thrives on its natural resources: a land of forested grounds and waters dense with fish. During winter’s short days, this Scandinavian country glistens with snow, encouraging kicksledding and ice-hole swimming. Summer ushers in a new landscape of festivals, hiking paths, and waterways.
