The Culture

Jordan's culture is a rich blend of traditions characterized by warm hospitality and a profound connection to its historical heritage. Jordanians are renowned for their cordiality, creating an inviting atmosphere for travellers.

In Jordan, formal greetings are a customary aspect of interactions. Expressing "Marhaba" (hello) and "Salam" (peace) when entering homes or shops is not only polite but deeply ingrained in the culture. Hospitality is highly esteemed, and guests are treated with the utmost respect. Offering tea or coffee as a sign of hospitality is a common practice, and it's considered impolite to decline.

The culture in Jordan is a harmonious fusion of various influences due to its historic role as a crossroads of civilizations. Arabic is the official language, but English is widely spoken, particularly in urban areas and among the younger generation. Jordan's population is predominantly Muslim, with a substantial Christian minority. However, the nation is home to a variety of other religious and ethnic communities, including Circassians and Bedouins. This religious diversity enriches the cultural landscape of Jordan.

Traditional attire remains an integral part of Jordanian culture. Jordanian men frequently wear the dishdasha (a long robe) and head covering, while women may be seen in the abaya or hijab. In urban areas, Western-style clothing is also prevalent.

Jordan's traditional music and dance forms, including dabke, serve as expressions of cultural heritage. These performances frequently accompany celebrations and special events, uniting people through music and rhythmic movements.
