This is a beautifully preserved area. Reminded me of being in Rome and Greece. Lots of walking. Wear good shoes, a hat, plenty of sunscreen and drink plenty of water. You will need it. Be watchful here as people may approach you looking to sell antique coins. These are nothing more than reproductions made to look old that they want... More

Me and my classmates went to Jerash this spring. First thing you see when you enter the city is the ruins of old Jerash. The view is spectacular. This place is huge, very well preserved and very cheap ( we were students so we paid 1.5 dinars). You also have a guide who was very nice and told us a... More

I have to admit that I was a little put off at first by the vendors near the entrance. Every time I said "no thank you", they would reply in Arabic "may God not bless you." I needn't have worried, as that was all forgotten by the time I reached the magnificence of the Oval Plaza which is captivating, as... More

A huge site with everything you would expect from the Romans, colonades, ampitheatres and baths. Lots to explore and highly recommended.

Wow! This is a city of Roman Ruins and it is amazing. Be prepared to walk and drink plenty of water. It will be crowded but be prepared to slow down to your pace and enjoy the surroundings. I would suggest you wear modest clothing as the people will stare at you. It's difficult as it is so hot, I... More

Very nice roman city ruins, it's fascinating, I was there at the Sunset and the view on the roman ruins was suggestive. If you are in Amman it's only 1,5 hour away by car so worth a visit. My Jordanian hosting family brought me there and then we went for a nice traditional lunch/dinner in a nearby restaurant. Had a... More

I loved visiting Jerash. I don't think a guide is needed...there are plenty of signs to explain the structures. Wear sunscreen!

Aside from the fact it was scorching hot, this site is amazing. The ruins are really well preserved and it's a great attraction which is in tact enough to give you a better indication of what it one looked like. We had an english speaking guide who really made this visit complete. His english was excellent and his manner and... More
