Here you'll find the Umayyad Palace, which dates back to about AD 720. The most intact building here is the domed audience hall, nearby is the small Byzantine Basilica & the National Archaeological Museum.

South of the Basilica are the remaining pillars of the Temple of Hercules, from here you get a great view of the Downtown area.

Address: Jebel al-Qala'a, Downtown Amman
