Located 50 km to the north of Amman, Jerash is one of the best-preserved Roman cities in the world and is home to ancient Roman monuments and ruins. For historians and heritage lovers, Jerash along with Petra is the highlight of a trip to Jordan. The large monuments and majestic structures of this lost city are still awe-inspiring. The focal point of attraction at Jerash is the Hippodrome that was built sometime between the 1st and 3rd century AD. The hippodrome hosts fabulous re-enactment shows of a Roman style chariot race twice a day that takes you back into the Roman times. Other attractions at Jerash include the Oval Plaza, the South Theatre, the Temple of Zeus, and the Temple of Artemis.
