Busra ash Sham Things to Do: 42 reviews and 164 photos
Not far from the South Cathedral, just south of the Nabataean Arch, lie the ruins of the Palace of the Roman Governor of Provincia Arabia, sometime referred to as the Palace of Trajan. Much of the structure, with its two floors, has survived, albeit within dwellings of a more recent period. It is thought to have been built in the early 2nd century AD on the site of the palace of the Nabataean King Rabbel II, which may have been preserved in parts within the Roman construction. In the early Christian period, the Palace was used as the residence of the Bishop of the South Cathedral of Bosra.
