About Mafraq

Mafraq is one of Jordan's governorates, situated north of the capital Amman. It is home to 287,300 people (2010 estimate), accounting for 4.5 percent of Jordan's population. Mafraq, the capital, is well-known for its military outposts.

Numerous Roman and Byzantine structures have been discovered across the governorate, most notably churches dating from the third century AD; they are thought to be two of Christianity's first purpose-built churches; and Roman water dams at Jawa, Ruwaished, and the capital of Mafraq. The Jawa Dam is the world's oldest known dam, going all the way back to 3000 B.C. Additionally, Mafraq city features a Roman fort.
Mafraq contained military installations that are still in operation today during the British mandate period. Mafraq is home to the Jordanian Army's fifth division.

The province is situated in Jordan's eastern region. It is Jordan's sole governorate having three nations on its borders: Iraq to the east, Syria to the north, and Saudi Arabia to the south. It is bounded on the west by the governorates of Irbid and Jerash, and on the south by the governorate of Zarqa.
Mafraq governorate is the kingdom's second biggest territory but the second lowest population density (after Ma'an). The climate is mostly dry throughout the year. The province's western section is a part of the rich Houran plateaus, which stretch over southern Syria, the Golan Heights, and northern Jordan. The eastern portion is surrounded by the desolate Syrian Desert. At the region's eastern boundary lies the 940m-tall Jebel 'Aneiza (or 'Unayzah), which serves as a triangular border between Jordan, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia.
The Governorate is linked to Iraq by the Karameh and Syria via the Jabir border crossings.

Mafraq Governorate has a population of 244,188 people, 30% of whom live in urban areas and 70% in rural areas, according to the 2004 census. Jordanians constituted around 94 percent of the population. Jordan's Department of Statistics estimates the population to be 287,300 in 2010, with a female to male ratio of 48.17 to 51.83 and a population density of 10.8 people per km2. Between 2011 and 2012, the Syrian civil conflict resulted in the movement of approximately 180,000 Syrian refugees to Jordan, the majority of whom settled in the Mafraq and Irbid governorates. In July 2012, the Mafraq Governorate launched the Zaatari refugee camp for Syrian refugees. According to the World Bank's 2018 projection, the population has increased to 593,900 people.
