The Jerash Ruins are a must see when you are in Jordan. The excavated city is quite big. Make sure to take an hour of 3 to walk through the city at an easy pace and to have time to enjoy looking around and walking off the main road into the accessible ruins. Try to do this in the morning... More

We drove here in our hire car , quite well signposted but the English spelling of Jerash changes often so keep a look out for phonetic spelling signs. There is a car park beside where you see the huge arch which we managed to miss and ended up parking in the street. The entrance is through a small souk (market)... More

We have seen plenty of Roman ruins throughout the world but would add this proudly to our collection. One of our highlights in our two day stay in Amman. Give at least 3 hours to stroll through and absorb the sheer size and magnificence of this place. We also climbed to the higher vantage point of one of the temples... More

These are the best Roman ruins I've seen outside of Pompeii, and the experience here was even more enjoyable than Pompeii - fewer people, more autonomy to wander around, climb on things, and explore back staircases. USAID has put up multi-lingual plaques explaining all the different areas and buildings. I arrived at 8am when it opened and had the place... More

Jerash is so impressive and an absolute must see when in Jordan. We visited early in the day to avoid the midday sun which was perfect. Nice temperature and great for walking around. The ruins are incredible amd very well preserved. Even more impressive than anything in Rome. We loved it.

The preservation of the colonnades and the temples is fantastic. You can really see how the city worked. It reminded me of St Peters Square at the Vatican, but a lot less crowded, which was a bonus.

As many reviews already said it is absolute impressive. Such a Roman archeological site in a good condition. I have seen them in european countries but less impressive. It was beyond my expectations. There is not much schadow and the sun is burning. So take enough water with you and go early in the morning.

Absolutely fantastic ruins and very Well preserved indeed. This place is a must visit for history buffs. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the Great South Gate, Hadrian's gate and the oval. The amphitheatre and Artemis's temple and Zeus's temple were also wonderful. Loved the visit!
