Definitely worth a visit! Especially if you like the ability to explore, as nothing is really roped off. We paid for a guide and he was great… sharing the history in a way that made the site come alive.

One of the most amazing and awe-inspiring Roman ruins archaeological sites in the world. It's definitely a must-see in Jordan. Many of the structures were well preserved as they were hidden under sand for more than a millennium before rediscovery in the nineteenth century and then painstakingly restored

A well preserved Roman site and one of the best to visit in Jordan. Most of it is still intact and can be seen without obstructions. Hardly anything is touched or restored since there is no need to. Definitely worth visiting, especially in the preseason when. You'll still need more then 2 hours here to be able to see all.

In the 7 days I was in Jordan, this site and Petra were the ones I would recommend the most.

AMAZING. JAW DROPPING. WOOOWWWWW. Honestly, the way it's been kept, the details, the history, everything about Jerash was phenomenal.

Definitely make it a must not a maybe if you go to Jordan.

This is Jordan’s largest Roman site and one of the best preserved Roman cities in the world. It is simply breathtaking!

It’s definitely worth hiring a guide to make the city’s history come alive, and to allow at least 3, maybe 4 hours to explore this place. There is little shade here, so a head covering, sunscreen and plenty of water are also highly recommended.

Although Petra is Jordan’s #1 architectural tourist attraction, this place should definitely be on your itinerary.

One of the best preserved Roman cities, it’s important to have enough time to see the whole place. Maybe 2-2.5 hours.

There are many interesting structures to see, including theaters, temples, hippodrome, streets, etc.

The trails off the main route offer great views. A very fascinating place! A must see!!

Those who love European culture outside of Europe are in the right place. This place is huge and well prevented. Be careful while you are admiring the architecture cuz days are very hot here and from your excitement, your erection could be more than obvious 🤣
There are also nice souvenir stores, facilities and local food. Good to see. Thank you🤩

Amazing place! You can vividly imagine a bustling Roman city since the hippodrome and market square, as well as colonnaded street are well preserved. The acoustics in the northern theater is incredible! The only downside was that it was terribly hot in August.

Jerash was settled as early as the Neolithic period (c. 7500-5500 BCE). It was founded as a Hellenistic city in the 2nd century BCE. It's noted for its fine Roman and Byzantine ruins, which rank among the largest and best preserved in the world. The stunning colonnaded streets, public squares, and hilltop temples are fantatastic.

There is an entrance fee of 12 dinar to enter the Jerash Roman ruins. This includes your entrance to the archaeological museum. Entrance into the site costs just 8JD (11.28 USD) and it usually takes the better part of a day to see everything. A great starting point is Hadrian's Arch which was built in 129 AD to greet Emperor Hadrian during his visit.

Jerash is a fantastic example of the Roman presence Jordan. The many temples and public spaces have been and are being discovered and restored to make them easily accessible. This is a " do not miss" destination.

A lot bigger than I expected, so much history and beautiful sites. There's not much shade so take an umbrella and lots of water. There are people selling water and tacky items along the way.

A large ancient Roman city in the city of Jerash. The place has a car parking, and then you enter a small souk that sells souvenirs and snacks/drinks. You buy tickets from here, and then you start your journey of exploring the many amphitheaters, pillars, roads, and gathering areas. Allocate anywhere between half to one full day to explore and enjoy this place.

Restrooms are at the entrance area only. Once you are in the ancient city, no restrooms or snacks/drinks to buy are available.

The Archaeological Site of Jerash is one of the best-preserved Roman cities in the world, and a must-see for anyone visiting Jordan. Located just north of Amman, the capital, Jerash is a sprawling site with temples, theaters, baths, and other public buildings that date back to the 1st and 2nd centuries AD.

Highlights of the site include the Hadrian's Arch, a triumphal arch built in honor of the Roman emperor Hadrian; the Temple of Artemis, a towering temple dedicated to the Greek goddess of the hunt; and the Hippodrome, a stadium where chariot races and other sporting events were held.

Jerash is a great place to wander around and explore at your own pace. There are also guided tours available if you want to learn more about the history of the site.

An amazing historical city site with easy access to. The city is located in the center of jerash and almost 1 hour away from Amman the capital.

For Jordanians, the entry is 0.5 jod

I went to Jerash to see the festival that decorates the hot summer night every year. It was a festival that I would definitely like to come back next year.
Jordanians are always friendly and nice to me.

Absolutely stunning. A must see. You truly can see what this amazing city must have been like as the ruins are so well preserved. Knowing you are walking on a road that has been traveled by millions of people over thousands of years is awe inspiring. You can almost hear the daily bustle of life. It is large so you’ll need plenty of time to see it all; several hours at a minimum.

Magnificent Roman ruins. I consider it at the same level as Pompeii and the ruins in Rome. It's a must do in Jordan, together with Petra.
