The Greater Amman Municipality (GAM; Arabic: أمانة عمان الكبرى) is the municipality (amanah) incorporating the metropolitan region of Amman, the capital of Jordan, and the bulk of the population of the larger Amman Governorate.
The municipal council was established in 1909. In 1914, the city of Amman was made the head of the Amman district. The city's population at the time was only 1,500-2,000 people. As of 2008, population was at 2.2 million, or 40% of Jordan's population.  As of 2016, population was at 4 million in 22 districts. In February 2016, the municipality announced plans to incorporate additional districts.
