Jerash: Jordan's Cultural Capital
Amman may be Jordan's capital, but Jerash may well be the country's cultural capital, with evidence of unbroken settlement found in the ruins. Visitors can see Greek inscriptions to Roman Temples to Byzantine churches all within the space of a few hundred acres. The ruins too, are beautifully preserved, all the way from Hadrian's Arch dating from 129 AD to the pint-size Hippodrome, which was one of the smallest in the Roman Empire.
