Most of the murals in this area of Amman were painted as part of one of the annual Baladk Urban Arts Festivals held in collaboration with the Al Balad Theatre. These festivals started in 2013 – the murals that I saw here were all from 2017 through 2019.

Very beautiful and inspirational to a community that is underprivileged. I loved the walking tour.
