Shop in Jabal Amman

Treat yourself in Jordan's cultural hub

Jabal Amman is an area of the capital named after the hill on which it sits. It is rapidly becoming a cultural hub and has a growing bohemian atmosphere. The neighbourhood is a network of narrow winding streets interconnected with paths and steps. It is pleasant and interesting to walk around.
The main street is Rainbow Street; it has several cafes, art galleries and an excellent bookshop with international and Jordanian titles. Nearby are the headquarters of both The Jordan River Foundation and The Royal Society for Nature Conservation. Both these organisations support traditional craft projects throughout Jordan. Jewellery, olive oil soaps, cushions, wall hangings, hand woven rugs, baskets and organic fruit preserves are just some of the very high quality products on sale at their shops.

Jabal Amman is also where the Soap House project has its city showroom with many handmade cosmetics for sale in an old townhouse surrounded by gardens.

After a hard day shopping, relax with a delicious meal at the restaurant terrace of Wild Jordan, the RSCN's stunning headquarters with views over Jabal Luweibdeh.
