Exploring The Ancient Graeco - Roman City Of Jerash
This ancient Graeco - Roman city was conquered by General Pompey in 63 BC, and was once a vibrant business center with churches, temples, shops, theaters, baths, fountains, well-planned streets and public squares. It thrived until an earthquake left it in ruins in 1927. Jerash is known for being one of the most well-preserved Roman provincial towns in the world. Today, visitors can explore the ruins of the old city as well as the modern city east of the ruins. Admission to the ancient site is 8 JD (about $11).
