The United Nations inscribed the historic Jordanian city of As-Salt on the World Heritage List Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as "the city of tolerance and civilised hospitality." During the late Ottoman period, As-Salt, built on three hills in the kingdom's west-central domain was a vital trading centre between the eastern desert and the west, attracting many merchants, tradespeople, and artisans from various parts of the location who settled and worked in trading, banking, architecture, and farming jobs. Their influence and contributions to the city aided Salt's flourishing, growth, and development into the city it is today. According to UNESCO, the city's metropolitan centre contains approximately 650 important historic buildings that reflect a mixture of European Art nouveau and Neo-Colonial varieties, as well as local traditions and customs. The Primitive localization of Salt shows a distinct blend of different cultural exchanges that facilitates extensive transformations of the Levant during the past years of the Ottoman Century. As per UNESCO, during this era there was a fluid culture, followed with people, skills, traditions, and wealth beyond diverse cultural and religious groups consisting majority of the urban population ranging from the city’s Golden Age to its present. Salt was Jordan's first urbanised city to be added to the World Heritage List; it is now the sixth Jordanian landmark to be selected as a World Heritage Site. Other Jordanian sites on the list include Petra, QuseirAmra, Umm er-Rasas, Wadi Rum Protected Area, and Jesus Christ's Baptism Site. Jordan's capital city of Amman is only a 30-minute drive away.
