Overlooking the heart of Amman, Darat al Funun is definitely one of my much loved places in Jordan. I find that with Dara’s beautiful art exhibitions, its mesmerizing architecture, and its ancient archaeology, the legacy of Jordan in terms of development and cultural identity is so perfectly represented.

Established in 1993 as a specialized art center, Darat al Funun incorporates exhibition spaces, a research and video library, open workshops and studios, visiting artists residence and venues for the performing arts. It’s also the perfect hang out :)

I feel compelled to share pictures I took of this wonderful place that I have become attached to. Check them out here.
