Amman, Mar 31 (IBNS-Notintown.net) Japan will grant Jordan 686,200,000 yen (around JD4.76 million) to build a new museum in the ancient city of Petra, under an agreement signed recently.


The 1,800-square-metre museum will showcase historical and archaeological artefacts discovered in the Petra region, and raise the local community’s awareness on protecting both the tangible and intangible heritage of Petra, the statement said.

We are very much confident that this museum will also contribute to the community development in Petra region,” said Japanese Ambassador Junicho Kosuge, who signed the agreement with Planning Minister Ibrahim Saif.
