A day trip from Amman Jordan, the ruins of Jerash are an incredble look back into the late Roman and early Byzantine eras. The ruins have been largely reconstructed, meaning columns have been righted and enough of the city has been made whole to provide a visitor the ability to see and understand what its glory once looked like.

One can appreciate the Roman lifestyle in around the second century. Its one of the places that should be in "Must visit" list when traveling to Jordan

I have visited the Coliseum in Rome and the Acropolis in Athens, and I can say without a doubt that Jerash is the most spectacular ruined city that I have visited. The vastness of the city, the condition in which they're preserved, and the complete lack of crowds make this place absolutely spectacular. You do not need a guide as... More

Like many things in Jordan, Jerash isn't being taken care of as well as it should be. The city itself is stunning but they just aren't maintaining it. Garbage all over the place, malfunctioning toilets, graffiti here and there. Still worth seeing, but be mindful of the typical local mentality of not caring for one's surroundings.

We travelled fromAmman by car for 60JD and it was well worth it. You go past the souvenir sellers and stumble first on a great arch and then the hippodrome. For many sites this would be enough but walking on (and there is a lot of walking) you see a whole city laid out before you. One of the great... More

A complete Roman city with seven meter high pillars, temples to Zeus and Artemis. Three theatres, one Hypodrome, Byzantine Churches, Hadrian's gate, public baths, main road (cardo) with plumbing! It is the closest thing to being in Rome over two thousand years ago. 45min out of Amman on an easy road to follow. Take a hat and water. Check the... More

These Roman ruins are really remarkable. An entire village is being unearthed after being buried in the sand. There is still an extensive area still to be excavated. Remarkably well preserved and well worth the visit.
