Bring good walking shoes with you and be prepared for a long but oh so worthwhile walk through these amazing ruins. The site is huge and you really do need to get around it and see the whole complex. It really is breathtaking. It really feels like you are walking in the steps of history. The worn stones where the... More

We arrived just after the site opened on a sunny, but chilly winter morning. It was great being able to explore such a monumental site without any crowds. There's an enormous amount to see and much of it is complete enough to give a very real sense of the wealth and sophistication of Roman Gerasa. Hard to single out "must... More

The roman ruins of Jerash is the second most visited tourist attraction in Jordan, after Petra. It's such beautiful place! A couple of hours of strolling around taking pictures and admiring the surroundings and the temples and theaters. No need for a guide. The entrance fee is 10 JD, but if you're a student in Jordan you get the same... More

We visited Jerash in Dec-2016. It is about 1.5hrs from Amman and we decided to do it on way back from Umm Qais. The expanse of the place is huge and it is nicely preserved. The access is available to most places inside and our guide was quite enthusiastic on this site. We spent about 5 hours and left as... More

I can't say enough good about Jerash. This place was amazing. There were very few people, we were allowed access to everything except one mosaic ruin, our guide was fabulous. It was such an intriguing place. There are two amphitheaters. We could walk anywhere we wanted, and in one we were treated to music. We had them all to ourselves... More

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

We were in Amman, Jordan for 5 days.In hindsight, I wish we had an extra day or two to take in the many historic sites that make this city a must on any bucket list.We used Amman as our base and travelled to the historic crusader castles,Jerash,Mount Nebo,the Sea of Gallilee , the Dead Sea and Petra from here.We were...

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.
