Jerash ruins was the first historical place we visited in Jordan. It is worth paying a visit there while you are in Amman. Because it is not a long drive. You have to walk a little in the ruins because it goes like a straight line. Did the ruins impress me? At first sight yes. But when you walk, it... More

This may be one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. I have traveled all over the world, but did not know about Jerash until my second trip to Jordan. This place is so spectular. We were almost the only people there except for some young boys selling trinkets. Want to go back. This is not to be... More

This is one of the largest and most well preserved sites of Roman architecture in the world outside Italy, and what a site it is. Was in Amman for vacation and decided to drive the 30 or so miles north of to the city of Jerash. We spent an entire day just exploring, taking photos and being in awe with... More

Having a guide will make your visit to this incredible site more rewarding . There is so much to see & learn, from the entrance via Hadrian's gate to the many temples, houses, stables, the colonnade streets , the shops & many more. The ampitheatre is amazing with incredible acoustics .

The Roman ruins of Jerash are right up there on par with the better-known Petra ruins, but it seems to receive just a fraction of the visitors -- which of course, was to my advantage. However, the low numbers could have meant the cancellation of the chariot races in the ruins of the hippodrome, which was a bit of a... More

If you're going to visit one place in northern Jordan this would be it. It's an amazing Roman city and parts of it are amazing well preserved considering it's 2,000 years old. I spent almost 4 hours here and loved it! When I was planning my time in Jordan I knew I wanted to see Petra, I was unsure about... More

If you visit Jordan, you should visit Jerash at one hour from Amman, it is value for money. spend at least 3 hours there and enjoy culture. a shame that the area in not clean at all, waste every where.

This fabulous ruin city teaches how intelligent, powerful and artistic our earlier civilizations are. Earth quakes, environmental changes and wars are culprits for today state. Yet this fantastic city stood strong. The ruins we see here is mere 7% of its original size , was informed by guide, and rest buried under the city. We also been informed by guide... More

In short, if you happen to find yourself in Amman with half a day to spare, this is the one place you want to visit. The amphitheater, mosaics, the stone streets and the massive number of standing columns all contribute to this amazing site. The whole place just oozes history & one can easily be awed while walking amongst the... More

I think it is a complete preserved place to feel like the roman empire were flourishing, just because in spite there was an earthquake ...most of the buildings stand to our days ...like the foro, the temple of Zeus and Artemisa with their high columns...the vias crossing the city, the teathers and the walls it is named the Asian Pompei....After...
