When one thinks about Jordan, it is easy to picture the stunning ancient stone city of Petra or even its capital, Amman, but one should not overlook the value of Jordan’s historic city of Jerash.

Located 30 miles, or 48 kilometers, north of Amman, Jerash is home to some of the most stunning and important ruins of the Greco-Roman era.  Conquered by the famed general Pompey in 63 BC, the remains are a great insight to what Rome looks like outside of Rome.
