The Temple of Hercules

Amman, Jordan—The Temple of Hercules, part of the citadel complex that overlooks downtown Amman, capital of Jordan. The face of Jabal al-Ashrafayeh and its dense buildings rise steeply behind, the uniquely black-and-white tiled Abu Darwish mosque just visible in the top right. An armada of kites fly overhead.
