King Abdullah II of Jordan and U.S. President George W. Bush in Raghadan Palace (2006)

Raghadan Palace is a crown palace located in the Royal Court compound of Al-Maquar in Amman, Jordan. Constructed in 1926, the property became the residence of King Abdullah I who would go on to order the construction of several more palaces in the surrounding area. The palace is constructed in a traditional Islamic style, with features modelled on the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. Raghadan's Throne Room hosts several major ceremonies as well as meetings with visiting Heads of State.[1] Costing £1,600 to build, the palace was renovated in the 1980s following a fire, although current monarch does not live at the property.[2]
