Umm Qais Museum reviews
Less know than Petra and Jerash, Umm Qais is a hidden germ of history and ancient civilizations. The drive to Umm Qais is awesome and takes you to places you never imagined. The ruins are impressive..... more »
Called Gadara in the Greek and roman times the present day ruins of Umm Qais are worth a visit, if only for the views. The ruins are famous for the views of the Sea of Galilee & Golan Heights... more »
During our trip to Jordan we visited Umm Qais / Gadara and surroundings. Our guide was Ahmad Al Omari, a man we can highly recommend. He was born and raised at the spot, so he can tell you all about..... more »
Nice piece of history, or what is left of it, since many houses have been build on the site using the stones from the old buildings. But different from the other places in Jordan, because of the stone used to build.
A very small museum - less than 15 minutes to see everything in it - displaying things recovered from the Umm Qais site. When we were there, many of the displays were empty and the whole place was disorderly. Just take a stroll through it while exiting the Umm Qais site.
Umm Qais, location 110 km North of Amman (Capital of Jordan) on a broad promontory 378 meters above sea level with a magnificent view over the Yarmouk River, the Golan Heights, and Lake TIBERIAS. This ancient town was known as GADARA, one of the most brilliant Ancient Greco-Roman cities of the Decapolis.....Higly recommended.
Very nice place
This is one of the the Dicapols city's on the middle East of the Greece and Roman i like it and i like the view from there to Golan heights and typros lage
