Constructed during the reign of Antonius Pius between 138-161 CE, the majestic Roman Amphitheatre is an impressive structure that is reminiscent of the glory that used to be during the time of the Romans. Look for a hotel in Amman Jordan if you plan to explore this wondrous creation and the Millennium Hotel Amman is a recommended Amman hotel that places you close to all the must-visit sites in town. Cut into the northern side of a hill, the roman amphitheatre is built in three tiers and has the seating capacity of 6000 people. As theatres often had a religious significance, one can see a small shrine at the very top of the theatre which had once housed a statue of the Goddess of Athena which now stands at the National Archaeological Museum. Once again restored to its former glory, the amphitheatre once again stages various productions, particularly during the months of July and August.
