Postage stamps and postal history of Jordan
Jordan is a country in the Middle East. It shares control of the Dead Sea with Israel. Jordan's only port is at its southern tip, at the Red Sea's Gulf of Aqaba, which it shares with Israel, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia. Much of Jordan is covered by the Arabian Desert. However, the north-western part of Jordan is part of the Ancient Fertile Crescent. The capital city is Amman.
Early postal arrangements
Jordan was part of the Turkish Empire until 1918 and a number of Turkish post offices existed in the area.
