Jerash

visit Jerash

The ancient city of Jerash awaits at the heart of Jordan, leaving visitors in surprise with its Roman heritage. Located on the ancient trading routes of the Middle East, Jerash soon became a commercial center for the flourishing empire. Today, it is one of the most prized attractions in Jordan. It hosts the best-preserved example of the Roman Decapolis. The city offers an intriguing diversion from the dominant architectural style of the country with several iconic structures. Hippodromes and ancient theatres are among the most cherished.

The elegant colonnaded streets lead the way into the heart of the city, where bustling Nabataean caravans and Greek chariots used to roam. Once your eyes get used to the shiny marble and granite surfaces, you will find that Greco-Roman monuments pepper the entire site. The majestic Oval Plaza and the South Theatre demonstrate some of the most appealing characteristics of Roman architecture. To the north on Jordan’s sandy plains, the Temple of Artemis rises in nobility. Corinthian capitals top each column of this delicate beauty, another signature ornament in Roman architecture. 

As described by UNESCO, Jerash is truly an ancient meeting point of the East and West. Pay a visit to the marvelous city during the festive season, and you will get to celebrate its splendor with people from all around the country.
