Urban Guide to Amman

Navigating Amman’s Circles:
Many of us Ammanis use the roundabout system to navigate; locations are often defined by their proximity to major circles, and many areas are indeed named after the circles themselves, as opposed to the other way round. Thus, the “Fourth Circle area” actually consists of bits of Shmeisani, Abdoun, and Jabal Amman.
