About the city of Ma'an

The municipality of Ma’an is considered one of the oldest municipalities in the Kingdom, as its founding dates back to 1898 AD. During the Turkish era, the municipal council was headed by senior full-time merchants to follow up the issues and affairs of the people at that time. The municipality had a comprehensive role in the past with limited capacities and capabilities. It intervenes in all social, economic, health and political issues. The old municipality was built in Haret al-Talahna in the past, and it is a mud building with a wide hall that still exists until now and is at the disposal of the Ma’an municipality. Later, in the fifties, the municipality moved to another building that was built in the Shamiya area, and then a building was constructed. It was new in the eighties in the center of the country, then the municipality moved on 18/8/2009 to the new building located on the roof of Ma’an and on Amman Road.
