On the eastern side of the Ajlun mountains, Amman is a hilly city through which a small river, Wadi ‘Amman, once ran. Settlements have existed on the plateau since at least 3000 BCE. The Islamic history of the city begins when the city was taken by the forces of the general Yazīd ibn Abī Sufyān in 635, but it declined in importance, and by 1300 had nearly disappeared.
The Ottoman resettled the site with Circassian refugees from Russia in 1878, but I wasn’t until becoming the capital of Jordan after World War II that the city really began to grow.
This complex is located on a 105,000 m² plot
of land in al-Yadoudeh area along Amman's Airport Road. It includes indoor and
outdoor spaces for sports facilities, restaurants, lounges, a business center,
a health and beauty center, play areas, and swimming pools. The club is
characterized by the use of irregular untreated local stone as a sheathing
