Nabatean TempleApprox. Time: 1 hours
Activity Level: Easiest

The ruins of the marble-columned Nabatean temple date back to the 14th century BC, and are believed to have been dedicated to the deities Atargatis (goddess of foliage and fruit) and Hadad (god of the thunderbolt). However, archaeologists have found relics associated with many gods and goddesses at the site. Also referred to as Khirbet al-Tannur, the temple was built on the edge of a steep bluff, with access limited to the southern flank. Many remains are at Amman’s Archeological Museum.
