Ancient City

 

Gerasa

 
 

The remains of the ancient City of Gerasa, modern day Jerash, exhibit all the key elements of the Roman city plan. Well preserved ruins include the Oval Plaza, Forum, Macellum, two Theatres, Hippodrome, Temples, Byzantine Churches, and colonnaded street, (the Cardo Maximus), which was the main central north-south road within the city. Unfortunately half the ancient city has been lost beneath the modern town of Jerash.
