Huge area of ruins you can walk around - but best to have a local guide

My colleague suggested we visited Jerash while we had a weekend stay in Amman. I was so glad he did; having visited other Roman sites in other countries it is almost impossible to imagine the scale of what is here. It's not a quick walk around - allow at least two hours to take in theatres, streets, the Mosque, the... More

I used to visit Jerash in my childhood. I was taking it for granted. I also participated in its annual festival. However, I visited it recently, and it is really amazing in the eyes of an adult :) I highly recommend visiting the city of pillars. A must see :)

Comparable to Pompeii, Jerash Ruins are appreciably marvellous to have withstood the test of time, weather and urbanization. The pillars, when viewed collectively from afar, are very impressive. I hope this site stays intact and majestic in the years ahead for the youth and the future beyond.

Jerash is usually part of every booked tour through Jordan. If you choose to travel Jordan individually make certian you don't miss out this amazing relicts of the Roman era. If possible plan a full day.

Before I went to Amman I'd never heard of Jerash. And yet it's on a par with Pompeii - the scale of the ancient city, and the monumental yet elegant and intricate stonework. Each of the individual buildings is well-explained (English, French, Arabic) by helpful signboards. We spent about two hours walking round the suggested route, but could easily have... More

A truly remarkable way to spend a whole day wandering aroudn the ruins. Gorgeous in so many way. because tourist numbers are low lately the place felt empty and you could wander at ease. Worth a good long walk and look.

This is the largest Roman city outside Rome, and probably the best preserved ancient Roman city in the world. This place is a must if you go to Jordan, is just 45 minutes north of Amman, I recommend you get a local guide since there is a lot to see on this place. There are still excavations around and much... More

The ruins of this ancient city came as an unexpected surprise because of the huge effort that has gone into its restoration. As the whole city unfolded before our eyes we got transported back in time.... from the Hadrian gate, to the arena where gladiators fought and horse races were held, to the Oval Plaza (main town plaza surrounded by...
