If you are an archeologist looking for a great site, consider this one. From what I understand, Jordan does not have the funds to do much here, but they would be very open to a reputable university, etc. doing some work here. Previously they did some restoration that was not done in the best manner (bad use of cement, etc.).... More

Compared to other Roman ruins, jerash is big! It is essentially the entire city, not just a couple of buildings or columns. The condition of everything is really remarkable! You can still read the ancient inscriptions on the stone work, and there is full access to all of the landmarks. From the imposing gate in the front, to the temple... More

For years, my husband and I wanted to tour Jordan. Not just Petra, but the ruins in Jerash, the city of Amman, the small city of Salt, the Jordanian desert and Mt Nebo where Moses stood. But we didn't want a typical tour where we were driven from site to site and given 15 minutes to walk around and snap... More

We have seen Roman ruins in a variety of places. This set of ruins rivals any we have seen outside of Rome and to be honest are probably easier appreciated than those in Rome, because Rome has so many that you get a bit numb. Don't miss the acoustic focal point in the center of the amphitheater. The Nymphaeum is... More

Above everything else we saw in Northern Jordan! We saw no other tourists here! It was unnerving being the on one's ! We felt privileged to have this amazing place to ourselves! Allow 3-4 hours to explore the massive abandoned city. Good boots or hiking shoes are strongly recommended.

The roman ruins at Jarash is one of the best preserved ruins of roman settlement which is more than 1000 years old. Roman ruins at Jarash is about 45 minutes drive from Amman city by car /taxi. There is 10 JD entry ticket and is more than worth it. This structures at the site are in greko roman style with... More

Abour less than an hour ride from Amman. The site is well preserved and you could still see good details in the pillars and buildings. the moment i step into the forum cardo, it amazed me and wonder how great it must be on its prime time. the complex is quite big, so make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes....

This beautiful city dates back over 1000 years and was destroyed in the earthquake of 749AD. The walk from the entrance (10JD for foreigners) to the Northgate will take you about 90 minutes as you stop and view the sites, explore the caves, visit the hippodrome, and view the ruins. Be prepared for the heat of the day and take... More
