Gerasa, now know as Jerash, is a fine expample of a Roman Colonial City. It has been excavated during the last 70 years. Gerasa is famous for its round forum and the beautiful collonaded streets, where today again the columns stand tto their full height.

The Jerash festival, held in July every year, transforms the ancient city into one of the world's liveliest and most spectacular culture events. The festival features folklore dances by local and international groups, ballet, concerts, plays, opera, popular singers and sales of traditional handicrafts, all in the brilliantly floodlit dramatic surroundings of the Jerash ruins.
