Jerash Is An Archaeology Site Of The Greco-Roman Ruins 

At Jerash the first thing you note is the condition of the ruins. What a marvelous site. The city of Gerasa was also called Antioch and is found in the North of Jordan.  This magnificent site shows the quality of the city. It is indeed the best of the Roman ruins we have seen outside of Italy.  You will find the ancient city among green hills and valleys filled with olive, plum, fig, and other fruit trees. This city was know for it's year around fresh water supply and as a bonus was set in a fertile valley. The city was destroyed and buried by an earthquake in 749 AD. The buried city was found in 1806 by an German explorer.

A historical site rich in the values of civilization. While writing this comment, I just returned from Borobudur temple in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, which also proves the richness of civilization of the past, long before Indonesia existed. I was reminded of Borobudur when I saw Jerash.
I'm waiting for a fuller story about Jerash on your next blog @exploretraveler. Thank you for sharing.

Amazing! I also like to travel.

Thank you for sharing such far away corner of globe - bringing them right to me here! I find it amazing that something of that age is still standing and in such amazing condition. I have often wondered how they navigated the architecture, without the help of modern equipment.

A wonderful post, as most of yours are. Thank you again.
