Oval Plaza - Forum, Jarash: 10 reviews and 24 photos

Having passed through the South Gate and the Govt Rest House (where there is a small museum explaining the history of the city), you have entered into the heart of the old city.

The Forum in Jarash is unique in that it is oval in shape. Because of this and its positioning (immediately below the Hellenistic Temple Of Zeus) there are arguments as to whether it was the Forum at all, but a place of sacrifice connected to the Temple.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
