It is one of the most important monuments in Jerash. It is on a small hill, dominating all the ancient city. The great entrance is facing the east, with a majestic propileum. And then there is a 4 metre elevation, where the main part of the temple is situated. The corinthian columns there are very well preserved, and it's a true spectacle. Byzantines and arabics used this temple afterwards for several works (kitchens, storage deposit or a fortress)
