Abila City (Modern Qweilbeh) is part of the Tentative list of Jordan in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
Abila was one of the cities of the Decapolis, a group of ten cities on the eastern frontier of the Roman Empire (now in Jordan, Syria and Israel). The site had been inhabited already by the Iron Age and possibly even the Bronze Age. During the Roman period it gained regional importance. It had an advance water system sustained by two aqueducts.
