  Roman Theatre
by Cristian_Uluru

The Roman Theatre is one of the best examples of Roman architecture in Amman. It is built on a side of a hill and inside it can sit more than 6000 people.
The thatre was built in the 2nd century AD, during the kingdom of Antonino Pio (138 - 161).
It was restored in 1957 but people used stones different from the original ones, so his restoretion wasn't very accurate.
Today it is used as a theatre in summer.
