This is a must do day trip from Amman, it has a lot of history, we had hired a local guide named Saddam, he had a lot of knowledge and was very friendly, make sure you take a guided tour, it has a lot to see, It was more Roman than even Rome

The Roman ruins at Jerash in Jordan are not to be missed. I believe that it is the best preserved Roman ruin in the world. It is an incredible place because it has so many in tact buildings and walk ways and it is so large. We went to Petra as well, but I really preferred Jerash. I felt completely... More

Huge area of Hellenicand Roman ruins at very good condition. The most impressive is the "Cardo", the main road with the columns and the north theatre. A visit there is a must.

The ruins go on forever and are in surprisingly good condition by and large. Foreigners get stared at in the souvenir shop area, but the place is completely safe.Well worth a stop.

This place is vast. We were there for 4 hours but it would be easy to spend more than a day there. The ruins are simply amazing. There is so much to learn and understand about the Roman way of life and be amazed by the engineering and layout of the site.Such a great place for photographers to come.

Roman ruins worth exploring - good descriptions provided. A vast site and a chance to try out the view from one of the ampitheatre seats. This is a much bigger site than Umm Quays which is also impressive.

Really impressive, make sure you take enough time, rest a bit once in a while, and fantasize about how it was back in the days... and bring some food and drinks! You can make great pictures there, bring a wide angle lens if you can ;-)

We got there in mid-morning and had the place to ourselves for a while (with our guide, who was very informative). The Roman ruins are much more extensive than we had expected, and there is lots to see, especially the theatre, forum, colonnaded street, triumphal arch, and temples to Artemis and Zeus. In April, the hillsides were covered by wildflowers... More

I confess I'm a sucker for a Roman site, so Jerash was high on my list of things to do in Jordan and it didn't disappoint. It is a large site and there are some monumental elements to it that have been uncovered - the main street, Oval Plaza and temples are spectacular as well as the theatres. Well worth... More
