Jordan is one of our favorite travel destinations. The country is so rich in history, culture and has some of the best food and friendly people.
About 48 kilometers north of Amman, the Roman ruins, the jerash, formed during Roman rule, are recognized as one of the best-preserved Roman buildings in the world except Italy.
The Eastern and Western civilizations are delicately blended here, both in architecture, religion and language, reflecting the intersection and coexistence of two powerful cultures, the Greek-Roman Empire and the Eastern Arabia.
Tickets for the ancient city of Jerash in Jordan are 8JD.
When you are in the ancient city of Jerash in Jordan, you can understand why Jordan has become a "Roman outside Rome" and is still standing stubbornly facing the broken stone pillars that have experienced several hardships. It is full of arrogance and glory. Standing here, you can feel the extraordinary majesty and grandeur of the Roman Empire.
Ancient City Aspects: Ancient Arena, Temple of Zeus, Temple of the Moon, Temple of the Water, Roman Cycling Avenue, Roman Amphitheatre, etc. It is recommended to check the information before going to the scene, otherwise the eyes will be black.
In addition, it is very effective to walk in the sunshade-free spots. Do a good job of applying sunscreen.
Going forward along the Roman market is the entrance to the Jerash Cathedral, which was built around 450 AD. The land of Jordan belongs to Byzantium and the faith has been attributed to Christ.
In the fountain courtyard in front of the main hall of the church, the citizens who come to Mass will wash their hands and faces here, and then go inside to purify the soul. There is also a legend in the
fouge pool. It is said that one day in October, Dionysos will come to live here, and at that time, it will be a mellow wine.
The highest point is the main hall of the church. The eight tall Roman columns were taken from the Temple of Zeus in the elliptical square. When the Roman Emperor Theodosius I declared Christianity to be the state religion in 393 AD, this The Temple of Zeus has become the biggest victim of the ancient city. Because of its large volume of stone, it is always the idea when the government needs to build a new building.
