Aqaba

Aqabah fortress Jordan flagAqaba is the only coastal city of Jordan, and thus plays a major role in Jordan’s trade, as well as tourism.  In Biblical times it was under Solomon’s control, and in Classical and Medieval periods it was a strategical city by the name “Aila”. It’s main historical attractions include rare remains of a church from early Byzantine Period , foundation of an Early Muslim fortress, and a Mamluk era fort which was conquored by a camel charge in 1917, consulted by “Lawrence of Arabia. Accordingly next to the fort to this day the flag of the “Great Arab Revolt is on display.
