In spite of a website that says the chariot racing is still taking place , it is not. The day we went the site was heaving with hundreds of visitors but no chariot racing. A huge disappointment. There are still signs at the hippodrome but nothing happens. Maybe the website and the signs need removing?

Amazing brilliant jerash. Excellent Roman empire. Very impressive historical. Visit with a guide is better extraordinary to see. We loved jerash. We loved Jordan.

Despite the books and signs at the site this tour doesn't exist therefore don't go expecting this. All I saw was a horse eating grass in the venue!

We visited at the end of October 2015 and there is no indication that it will start again. Speaking to guides at the site they say that tourism has dropped by up to 90% at the site and that they cannot see improvements in the next few years. They are concerned that the skills held by those involved in the previous show cannot be regained so the chariot racing may never start again.

It is a shame because the sheer scale and quality of the site is wonderful and to be able to recreate the spectacle of the chariot races must have been spectacular.

If visiting Jerash this will not be available any time soon, and we may well have missed our opportunity...

Site in excellent shape.

Due to lack of visiting tourist the show has been suspended.

Quite sad actually.

Jordan is beautiful and safe and gets unfortunate negative press which hurts tourism which is a big part of GDP.

Your imagination here and a few minutes of solitude is still a great experience.
