Death and humans’ response to it have long held the power to bind cultures together and create places that transcend time and custom. Our collective respect for the dead and where they are laid to rest reaches across cultures like few other human experiences.

Officially titled the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan this is an Arab kingdom in The Middle East, on the East Bank of the Jordan River, and extending into the historic region of Palestine. Jordan borders Saudi Arabia to the south and east, Iraq to the north-east, Syria to the north, and Israel to the west, sharing control of the Dead Sea with the Israel.
The desert kingdom emerged from the post-World War I division of the West Asia by Britain and France. In 1946, Jordan became an independent sovereign state officially known as the Hashemite Kingdom of Transjordan. After capturing the West Bank during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, Abdullah I took the title King of Jordan and Palestine. The name of the state was changed to The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in 1946, but this did not become commonly used until a few years later.
Jordan is a constitutional monarchy but the king Abdullah II holds vast executive and legislative powers.
