Nadwa Palace is located within the grounds of the RHC to the south of Basman Palace. Its name comes from Dar Al Nadwa, a forum established by the Hashemites’ ancestor, Qusai bin Kilab, in the early 7th century and before the birth of Prophet Mohammad, peace and blessing be upon him. It was a place where the leaders of Quraysh held meetings. Nadwa is the fifth Royal palace after Raghadan, the Little Palace, Basman and Zahran. Its construction was completed in 1964.
Nadwa Palace – initially the Palace was known as Al Diafa- was the fifth Hashemite palace. It was built as the private home of Prince Nayef bin Abdullah and was completed in 1964. The palace is located in the Royal Court and lies on the Royal Court grounds slightly to the south of Basman Palace, whose influence is evident in its external design. Nadwa was also King Hussein´s home. He and Queen Alia lived there until 1976 when they moved to the new palace which was built for Queen Alia (Al Hashmiya Palace).
