I was pleasantly surprised to find such a large complex of Roman era ruins. The local guide was very helpful in pointing out features of interest and helping construct a feeling of the city as it was in its prime. Walking along the stone cobbled...More

Jerash will surprise you at every footstep. Heard this is the biggest Roman empire ruins in the region.

The ruins of Jerash were our first sight in Jordan. Well preserved. Especially the theater was beautiful.

This was an incredible restoration from Roman and Byzantine times. As impressive as Pompeii. Also note that Jesus and John the Baptist walked these hills.

If you like ruins then great; come have a look. Personally I am indifferent over them but considering there really isn't too much on on Amman I came and had a look. (TIP: you can get a taxi for about 15-18 dinar with some hard...More

Very impressive ruin, size wise bigger than Rome, probably bigger than Ephesus. Other than its iconic oval plaza, there’s hippodrome, 2 Roman theatre (both smaller than Ephesus), temple of Zeus, an impressive temple of Artemis. Hiring a guide will cost 30JD Compared to Ephesus that...More

I have been to a number of other Greek and Roman sites, but this one ranks among the best I've seen. It sprawls about 2 miles in length and over a mile wide with numerous ruins of temples and Roman columns along the way. Only...More

I would advice Jerash which is much more beautiful and big than Kerak. I think it is nearer as well.

Hi there is nowhere to leave your luggage. Perhaps book into a cheap hotel and leave it there - the carpark was full but not attended by security.
