After Petra – The most popular destination in Jordan

Probably the most popular tourist destination in Jordan after Petra, Jerash is considered by many to be one of the best preserved Roman towns on the face of the Earth. A medley of the ancient Greco-Roman and Arab cultures, Jerash boats of the region’s earliest settlement dating back right to the Bronze Age ( 3200 BC – 1200 BC ).

Inscriptions from the time of Alexander the Great can be found here along with some exquisitely preserved Roman architecture that led to it being referred to as the ‘Pompeii of the Middle East’.

The ruins of these ancient empires are in impeccable condition owing to the strict non-encroachment policy.

With structures like the Oval Forum, the Hippodrome and the Temple of Artemis, Jerash is the best place for people interested in ancient Grecian and Roman cultures.
