Admire the views and take in the architecture when you use this modern crossing to travel between the two parts of the Jordanian capital.

The modern Abdoun Bridge is a fascinating feature in the dynamic urban landscape of the ancient Jordanian capital. Despite its relatively short history, the bridge has already become a local icon because of its striking design.

Use the bridge to cross Wadi Abdoun, a small ravine that splits the city in two. On one side lies Jabal Amman and on the other lies Abdoun. Thanks to the slight “S” shape of the bridge, you’ll be rewarded with shifting views of the wadi and the surrounding cityscape as you drive along.

Completed in 2006, the Abdoun Bridge is aesthetically and technically impressive. This cable-stayed bridge is the first of its kind in Jordan. The lofty structure is a remarkable feat of engineering that, not surprisingly given its size, took 4 years to complete. To recognize these efforts, the Institution of Structural Engineers awarded a commendation to the structural designer of the bridge in 2007.

Park on the edge of the ravine, which resembles an arid valley, to take a closer look at the bridge. Admire the elegant Y-shaped pylons towering overhead. These three towers reach 232 feet (71 meters) in height, and thick cables hold the bridge firmly in place.

See the bridge from yet another angle by taking a drive along the road that runs beneath the bridge, straight through the valley. The Abdoun Bridge stands 147 feet (45 meters) clear of the valley floor, making it look even more impressive as you pass beneath.

The Abdoun Bridge is located to the east of downtown Amman, beside the upmarket western neighborhood of Abdoun. There is no toll charge to cross the bridge, so you can cross as often as you need to take it all in.

It’s recommended to return at night to see the bridge beautifully lit up with a mixture of lights that accentuate this architectural marvel. Different viewpoints highlight different aspects of the bridge and from certain angles the cables look like massive silken cobwebs that hold the bridge in place.

"The lobby area is beautiful, and the pools and the spa are amazing. The room was large although a little dated and the tile in the shower could use some updating. The water pressure in the shower was great though. It was a lovely place to stay."
