Located 48 km (30 miles) north of the capital Amman, Jerash is known for the ruins of the Greco-Roman city of Gerasa. Jerash prospered during the 1st century BC due to the spice trade route from the Arabian Peninsula to Syria . Jerash was a favorite city of the Roman emperor, Hadrian. The Muslims took over in AD 635, but the final blow to the city was dealt by Baldwin II of Jerusalem in AD 1112 during the Crusades. Do not forget to see

Umm Qais, previously known as Gadara according to the Bible, it was in Gadara that Jesus performed one of his greatest miracles – casting demons from two men into a herd of pigs. In Umm Qais you could look down and see Lake Tiberius, which was once known as the Sea Galilee.
