Jerash, is located 45 kilometers north of Amman, and is considered one of the largest and most well-preserved sites of Roman architecture in the world outside Italy.

To this day, its colonnaded streets, baths, theaters, plazas and arches remain in exceptional condition.

Within the remaining city walls, archaeologists have found the ruins of settlements dating back to the Neolithic Age, indicating human occupation at this location for more than 6500 years. This is not surprising, as the area is ideally suited for human habitation.
