Jerash has Roman ruins in the middle of Jordan. Fascinating! I’ll show you some of my favorites here.
Jerash day trip
My first stop on the road trip through Jordan was Jerash, which includes the ancient city founded by the Romans in the 1st century BCE (called Gerasa at the time). It’s my first time seeing a city that was part of the Decapolis (Greek: Deca = 10, Polis =
town/city), a grouping of ten towns in what is now Jordan, Syria and northern Israel.
