Jerash Ruins, Jerash

(4.9/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Continuously occupied for more than 6,500 years, Jerash Ruins presents one of the best examples of ancient Roman provincial town planning. Neolithic remains found on site indicate millennia of inhabitants even before General Pompey captured the city in 63 BCE and initiated the development of a Roman city. The ruins are well-preserved because the city was buried under sand for centuries before their rediscovery in 1806. Be prepared with water and comfortable shoes to spend a lot of time walking in order to see the ruins of the theater, forum, temples, and bathhouses, among many other structures.

  • Exciting! What a find Jerash. Amazing now that do not have the protection of Unesco. The finds unearthed are of huge value. From two amphitheaters, at three early Christian churches with mosaics. And then the Hippodrome, the Thistle and the two decumani. Try the eco at the center of the audience of the Amphitheater increased and then the test of column ' moving '.
