This was one of the very pleasant surprises - to visit in Jordan the ancient ruins of Jerash (the Roman name of the city was Gerasa).
This city have its roots in Neolithic period, and it was partially destroyed in two main earthquakes.
We walk in besides the Arch of Hadrian, built for the visit of Roman emperor Hadrian at Gerasa in the year 129 AD.
Then I'll enumerate the main attractions of the site : the huge Oval Forum, the Hippodrome, the North Theater - with some local representations, the Cardo Maximus, the Temples of Zeus and Artemis, the Northern Tetrapylon, the Jerash Nymphaeum, the City Walls.
I saw something similar in Turkey, at Ephes, or in Italy - Pompeii.
If you plan to visit Jordan - Jerash is a "must".

Nice place to go when visiting the north part of Jordan. The site is surrended by the city which give a special mix of old and new building.

Very large old Roman complex. Impressive to walk through the large old remainings, though there is still much to restore.

Beware there is almost no shade, so bring stuff against the hot sun.

We were only here for an afternoon but I think you could spend a couple of days just wandering around soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying the numerous ruins. An incredible site

The most beautiful and extensive Roman Ruins in the world better than Rome. This is an amazing place it is huge and very well preserved. Give yourself the whole day to walk and explore. Exceeded all my expectations.
