When Emperor Hadrian visited Jerash in 129 AD, it was already thriving. To honour its guest, the city raised a Triumphal Arch, just one part of massive building programme. Today you can walk beneath the imposing south gate and then make your way up the ‘Street of Columns’ – the Roman Cardo- Running 600 meters north from the Oval Plaza. As you step over the tracks of chariot wheels, still visible in the paving stones, imagine prosperous citizens window-shopping beneath a covered sidewalk.

MADABA:

South of Amman proudly stands the “City of Mosaics”, Madaba, perched on an archaeological site with more than 4000 years of history buried beneath it.  The quality and quantity of mosaic flooring has made Madaba one of the most prominent cities in the world for mosaics. St. George’s Church houses the world famous mosaic floor depicting a large mosaic map of Palestine.  Centrally located on this mosaic floor is a detailed

map of Jerusalem as it was during the sixth century AD.  At the Church of the Apostles, at the southern entrance of the city, is a mosaic floor attributed to the craftsman Salamanios, depicting the Sea, with the central figure of a woman encircled with a selection of creatures, vegetation and an inscription.

Kerak:

Kerak lies about 150 km south of Amman.  It is famous of its crusader fortress in the center of underground galleries, rooms and secret passageways and its thick defensive walls pierced by narrow arrow slits where crusader archers held out bravely but in vain for over 100 years.  It was the crusaders who made Kerak famous.  Payen Le Boutellier, the lord of Montreal, built the fortress in 1142.  He made Kerak the new capital of the province because it was situated on the king’s highway, where it could control all traffic from north and south.

The ancient city of Petra was built from 800 BC to 100 AD by Nabetean Arabs.  In this era Petra was a fortress, carved out of craggy rocks in an area, which was virtually inaccessible.  In the first and second century, after the Romans took over, the city reached the peak of its fame.  Petra covers an area of about 100 square km, where over 800 monuments can be found.  When shipping slowly displaced caravan routes, the city’s importance gradually dwindled; it fell into disuse and was lost to the world until 1812, when it was re-discovered by the Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt. Nowadays Petra is Jordan’s number 1 tourist attraction, known as the “rose-red city half as old as time”. The Khazneh (the Treasury), starred in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
