This picture goes back 1000 BC in Jordan!!




They could have chosen a better name, but here it lies at the heart of Amman, more precisely in Jabal Amman... I never knew we had stuff that dated back 1000 BC in Amman, nice!

شكرا أبو الكيلاني

My parents house is in that street..I was always shocked how no one knows those antiquities..but the Ministry of Toursim is the one to blame..

MK, Jordan is so full of amazing antiquities that no one knows about. Enough stuff to send every kid on a field trip weekly!

Thanks MK, I've never heard of Rajm Malfouf before. Thanks for the useful post! (BTW, Jordan is full of antiquities, I think is impossible to know them all!!)
