A Journey In Time Through The Ruins Of Jerash Jordan

in #travel4 years ago

 The Arch Of Hadrian 

The magnificent Arch in Jerash, is a part of the fantastic gateway that gave honor and homage  to Emperor Hadrian on his visit to the city of Gerasa, in the year of 129. The city was latter re-named Jerash,

From The Bronze Age Comes The Impressive Ruins Of Jerash. 

In ancient times, the city was called Gerasa, though it was renamed to Jerash latter. This is an ancient Greek and Roman city that was located near the mountains just to the north of Amman. This city is perhaps the best preserved ruins of this type outside of Italy.  

The ancient city enjoyed great respect and wealth. The Gateway Arch was built a distance away from the walled city so that the city could be expanded and connected easily. This was a time of great prosperity for the city and nothing that was used in the building project was cheap or cut any  corners. Only the best was deemed worthy for this building project. 

 Phoenician Juniper Trees In A Land Filled With Ancient Ruins 

Beautiful Junipers flourish throughout mountain deserts surrounding Jerash. This Juniper Tree is used for incense, The essential oil of the Juniper tree is used to support the liver, the leaves are often used for  assisting diabetics. In Jordanian traditional medicine, the leaves and berries are used to treat bronchitis, gout, and arthritis. Many different traditional medicines use this Juniper tree to treat many different aliments. 

 Modern Jerash Jordan 

Jerash, Jordan has been continuously  inhabited since the Bronze Age.  It is best known for the quality ruins of the walled Greek-Roman settlement of Gerasa. While traveling throughout Jordan, be sure to spend some time exploring the ancient walled city of Gerasa.  It is one of the magnificent places on earth.

Buen trabajo amigo es verdaderamente de calidad

steemit noobie question: how do you format the text like that? i'm trying to make a similiar reportage (take a look on my blog) but i can't get the headlines centered like this. would appreciate any help, thank you!

@naughtysketches You have to use center markdown like<cente*>words replace * with r

@exploretraveler - given its' rich cultural and historical significance, Jordan is a country that should be on one's travel destination and given that some of the other countries with such ancient history from that part of the world has crumbled politically (such as Iraq and Syria) and is no longer accessible, this is one of those few places that sombody who loves the experience of the ancient would shouldn't miss

@roji.abraham yes however those areas can be somewhat accessible to an experienced adventurer but Syia would need very special planning. Southern Iraq Ur visit is doable with connections. We have already been there.

Interesting. I once passed through Iraq and Jordan as a child refugee in the Gulf war of 1990 (my family lived in Kuwait then)- still have vague memories of both places. Good to know Iraq is still accessible, though I would stay away from Syria (as a tourist) given the very sensitive position the country is in now.. Thanks for the post.
