by call_me_rhia

Jerash is the roman Gerasa, and its the best preserved of the 10 cities that used to belong to the Decapolis, a Roman association of cities. What is truly spectacular about jerash is the street plan, the colonnated main street, and the oval square (very unconventional).
Other important monuments to see are the South Theatre, the Temple of Zeus, Adrian's Arch, the Nymphaeum, the Artemis Temple Complex and the North Theatre.
Roman ruins aside, there are also 14 byzantine churches with splendid mosaics
