Very well preserved Roman ruins. A very easy to hike site with it being about an hour or so to walk from one end to the other.

Very interesting historic location that can take you back a couple thousand years. We went with a group, but didn't have a local tour guide. Sill got some good history of the place.

What a gem. The description in books and by travel agent did not adequately Layers and layers of history. Ruins in excellent condition. Ancient Jerash was comparable to ruins in Rome. Cannot believe Jerash is not pushed as a prime stop in Jordan. Recommend it...More
