Historical place. This is a must see especially if you have Jordan pass. The entrance to the site is free with Jordan pass. There are no food courts here. There's a great view from here on all sides. Museum located here has a very rich collection.
There's not much remaining of this temple on Amman Citadel but whatever is there is pretty decent. A few tall columns, some intricate pieces, lots of stones and ... the Hand of Hercules, which supposedly belonged to a huge statue of Hercules. It feels very nice to stroll around this area in the bright morning sun and the views of the city are amazing.
