If you travelling in Jordan these ruins are worth a visit from Amman. It only takes an hour by car to Jerash. One can spend a whole day in these ruins & they are very impressive - see the Zeus & Artemis temple. The ruins are in the middle of the city so one cannot miss this historical site.

We visited Jerash today and were blown away by the scope of the site and the extent of the various buildings and structures. There was so much to see and it was so beautiful. This is a site that anyone visiting Jordan must see. We bussed from Amman and the ticket cost 1JD each.

We purchased the Jordan pass and Jerash was one of the sites that was included. After seeing pictures, I knew it was a must-do for our trip. When you first arrive, be prepared to have restaurant staff from surrounding restaurants stop you and ask you to eat at their place. You also walk through an "artists village" before you enter,...

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. Who knew that... More

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
