Amman today
Today’s Amman has both a modern and historic touch. A large contrast exists between the districts of West Amman and the districts of East Amman.
West Amman is the lively, modern part of the city. This part of Amman is the more prosperous one. Most 5 and 4-star hotels are located in West Amman. The view is mostly dominated by parks and wide boulevards with apartment and office buildings.
Shmeisani and Abdali are amongst the most important districts of West Amman, as they serve as business centers. Other important districts include Abdoun, which is the up-scale residential area

Amman back then
Settlements have existed in Amman for several centuries. From the Chalcolithic Period (c. 4000 – 3000 BCE), Amman became the capital of the Ammonites as Rabbath-Ammon, which later fell to the Assyrians.

It was conquered by Egypt's Ptolemy II, then it was renamed Philadelphia and became a great Roman trade center.

After the Islamic conquests, Amman became part of the Muslim empire, until the Ottomans were forced out by the Allies, with the help of the Hashimites, who formed a kingdom that continues to rule until the present.
