Sweileh (صويلح) is district number sixteen in Amman out of twenty-seven. It lies in Jordan to the north of Amman with a population of over 151,016.[1]

The town is known for having a good climate throughout the year, it is one of the few districts that sees snow during winter due to its high altitude. The cultivation of olives and grapes, heavy industries, such as auto assembly, steel, and cement, make up the local economy.

It is considered one of Amman's most populated districts since it has the University of Jordan and is a connection point to other cities such as Salt, Irbid and Jarash.
