Amman, Jordan (3) Souqs



From the Nymphaeum fountain you arrive into Al-Balad - the heart of Amman and ideal for exploring. 


This is where most of the shops and souqs are (note that Friday and Saturday is the weekend in Muslim countries with a lot of shops closed on Fridays).



There are a lot of different souqs, so you'll find something to take your fancy, whether its  fruit and vegetables...



...dried fruits & nuts...





...hardware...



...clothing...




...gold...

...perfume...


...or spices....




I stocked up on some spices (sumac plus mixed ones).  Another traditional Arabic spice is za'atar - definitely worth grabbing some to bring home and cook with.
