The Arab Regional Centre for World Heritage commemorates “Jordanian Antiquities Day”

Following a Cabinet session which was recently held in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, it has been declared that 27 June will be officially designated as “Jordanian Antiquities Day” and will be celebrated every year to raise awareness and promote the importance of conservation and safeguarding of Jordan’s cultural heritage.

Jordan has a total of 5 cultural World Heritage sites, including the iconic site of Petra. You can explore these sites on our interactive World Heritage sites map in our Knowledge Centre.
