Magnitude of the place is overwhelming. To bad that it's not more of it in pristine conditions. I gues not all places were as ''lucky'' as Pompei.

The Roman Forum is awesome and all because it is in Rome for sure but this Roman city is #1 still intact and #2 you can wander around inside of it in a way that you can't in the Eternal City. #3 The sheer scale is another element that will give you new respect for Roman ingenuity.

We were at Jerash on a rainy day, otherwise I would have never left it. Spectacular. We were here with a Smithsonian Journeys tour and I wondered why we were going--now I know. Temples, uncovered Roman roads, columns, a hippodrome where they held chariot races, an amphitheater-- it was all there and more. Best surprise of the trip.

I loved the place and all it's history. It is one of the best preserved Roman city and a must see for antiquity lovers. The ruins of the forum at the intersection of the Cardo maximus and decumanus is magnificient. We entered through the South gate and covered the full site including the hippodrome, forum, the two theatres, nymphaeum and... More

We had the pleasure of being guided by Yousef Zreagat, a very learned and warm man. He brought to life the past of Jerash and revealed to us the many secrets of this wonderful site. Fred

I am lucky enough to have extended family who are Jordanian, and live in and around Amman - and that is one of the reasons that I managed to visit Jerash and witness these amazing ruins. UNESCO need to help with the upkeep of this location so that it does not deteriorate. The ruins rival that of Pompei, and are... More

We visited the ruins in Jerash. It's one of the best preserved Roman city I've seen. We spent a couple of hours exploring the place. There are 2 amphitheaters and they are the best I've seen. I've been to a few and these look so good I wonder if they actually use them. The structures that are standing are amazing.... More

After spending 10 days in Egypt and 6 in Jordan. We ended our trip with a visit here it was a last minute decision and I hate how close we came to missing it. As good as Petra as exciting as the pyramids. Simply amazing and so sad that UNESCO will not take this over to protect and restore. Simply... More

On a recent trip to Jordan, we started our journey in the historic site of Jerash. The Roman ruins rival Pompei, with a forum and hippodrome that is more intact than those in Rome. Within an easy one hour drive of Amman, it is a quick day trip from the capital city, and a must see historic site.
