Ancient Roman City of Jerash

A short drive outside of Amman is the city of Jerash. Conquered by Emperor Pompey in 63 BC, Jerash came under Roman rule and is one of the best-preserved Roman cities outside of Italy. This is a picture of the North Theater originally constructed in the 160s AD. It's easy to spend hours walking around and let your imagination get the better of you. Just be sure you pack a lot of water and a hat if it's during the summer.
