The Mosque

In the courtyard, right beside Qasr al-Mshatta's main entrance is the mosque. A niche in the south wall was probably the mihrab (prayer niche).

The Umayyad palace from the mid 8th cent., close to Amman's airport, is world-famous for its carved ornamentation. Remains can be seen on the site, extensively restored in 2013.
