In 63 BC General Pompey conquered Gerasa (Jerash) and as result it fell under Roman rule, becomingone of the ten great Roman cities of the Decapolis.

Hidden for centuries under the sand, Jerash has stood the test of time and contains the most well-preserved Roman settlement in all of the Middle East. The city is an incredible model of grand Romanurbanism and includes colonnaded paved streets; hilltop temples; amphitheatres; public plazas andsquares; fountains and baths; and city walls sporting immense towers and gates.

After picking you up from the hotel we head north and travel to the spectacular city of Jerash. The city of Jerash contains the most well-preserved Roman site in all of the Middle East and you will get a chance to gaze upon this special place that has survived for thousands of years.

Overview of Sites for Ancient Jerash City:
Hadrian’s Arch: you will enter the ancient Roman city through this oval arch. Built in 129 AD to mark
Emperor Hadrian’s visit, this stunning piece of architecture is considered as magnificent as the arch in the forum in Rome.

Hippodrome: as you pass through the arch, to your left you will find the hippodrome or ‘circus.’ The hippodrome, a stadium-like structure was used for horse and chariot races by the ancient Greeks and Romans. There is currently a show (The Roman Army and Chariot Experience) that replicates the events that took place here centuries ago. Guests interested in experiencing the show can find more information below.

Forum (Oval Plaza): an asymmetrical plaza at the beginning of the column-laden street that runs the length of the city. It was once lined with the city’s major buildings, shops, and residences.

Agora: this was the city’s main food market. Here you will see the nymphaeum (or central fountain).

Nymphaeum: an ornate public fountain that was decorated with lions’ head motifs and dedicated to the nymphs—mythological female deities of nature.

Temple of Artemis: these impressive ruins are all that’s left of the temple dedicated to the patron
goddess of the city, Artemis.

South Theatre: one of the only two theatres in Jerash to survive, the South Theatre is the largest. Here you will see a 1st century amphitheatre that seats up to 3,000. If you’re lucky, you may catch the Jordanian military band playing there.
Jerash Archaeological Museum: Jerash was a city hidden under centuries of sand that has only begun to be excavated in the last 70 years. The museum features a collection of artefacts found during these various excavations including coins, statues and sarcophagi.

Things to consider while in Jerash: The Roman Army and Chariot Experience (RACE):
The epic hippodrome race can now be seen for the first time in over a thousand years. Guests will enjoy the authentic replicas of Roman chariots racing in the stadium.
