4 of 4 posts on my 7-day stay in Jordan
As my stay in Jordan neared the end, I looked forward to yet another important historical treasure – the ancient city of Jerash, considered to be one of the best preserved Greco-Roman provincial towns in the world. Dating back more than 6,500 years ago, Jerash was a thriving city due to its proximity to popular trading routes. The walled city was at its best around AD 130 during Emperor Hadrian’s rulership.
