One of the ancient Decapolis trading cities, Jerash is one of the world’s best-preserved provincial Greco-Roman provincial cities. Its colonnaded streets, baths, theaters, plazas, and arches remain in exceptional condition. Jerash is situated north of Jordan in the ancient region of Gilead, 45km north of Amman.
Recent excavations show that Jerash was inhabited during the Bronze Age and Iron Age (3200 BC-1200 BC). After the Roman conquest in 63 BC, Jerash and the surrounding land were annexed by the Roman province of Syria. An impressive archway commemorates the visit of Emperor Hadrian to the site.
The Jerash Festival of Culture and Arts was an annual event from 1981 to 2002, which showcased talented artists and theatrical groups from all over the world during the summer season. Nowadays, the festival has expanded into the Jordan Summer Festival, which includes performances held at Jerash theatres, the Roman Amphitheatre in Amman, and the Amman Citadel. Information on the upcoming summer event will be available soon, and a link to it will be posted. If you plan to visit during the summer, you might be lucky enough to attend one of the performances. Most events feature exceptional Arabic musical acts, catering to the local population and the summer influx of visitors from the Gulf States. Moreover, renowned entertainers from Europe and North America are also featured in this festival.
