Only a short hour’s drive north of Amman is the Graeco-Roman city of Jerash (Gerasa in ancient times). This ancient city of Jerash is remarkable for its unbroken chain of human occupation.

The city’s golden age came under Roman rule and the site is now generally acknowledged to be one of the best-preserved Roman provincial towns in the world.

Jerash reveals a fine example of the grand, formal provincial Roman urbanism that is found throughout the Middle East, comprising paved and colonnaded streets, soaring hilltop temples, handsome theatres, spacious public squares and plazas, baths, fountains, and city walls pierced by towers and gates.
