Postcard From Jordan

Oval Plaza in Jerash

The 1st century Oval Plaza and the colonnaded Cardo Maximus (main street) of the Roman city of Jerash as viewed from the temple of Zeus. The new city in the background is a striking contrast.


Many thanks to the Jordan Tourism Board for making this post possible. 

While you are here, do take the time to read the history and legends of another historical monument on the Kings Highway.
