Jerash Location:

Jerash is located 48 km north of the capital city of Amman, Located in Jerash Governorate.

Jerash Governorate:

Jerash Governorate is one of 12 governorates in Jordan. It is located on the northwestern side of the country. The capital of the governorate is the city of Jerash.

Jerash Governorate has the smallest area of the 12 governorates of Jordan, yet it has the second-highest density in Jordan after Irbid Governorate. Jerash Governorate is ranked 7th by population.

Evidence of settlement in Jerash:

The earliest evidence of settlement in Jerash is in a Neolithic site known as Tal Abu Sowan, where rare human remains dating to around 7500 BC were uncovered.

Jerash flourished during the Greco and Roman periods until the mid-eighth century CE, when the 749 Galilee earthquake destroyed large parts of it, while subsequent earthquakes contributed to additional destruction.

However, in the year 1120, Zahir ad-Din Toghtekin, atabeg of Damascus ordered a garrison of forty men to build up a fort in an unknown site of the ruins of the ancient city, likely the highest spot of the city walls in the north-eastern hills. It was captured in 1121 by Baldwin II, King of Jerusalem, and utterly destroyed. Then, the Crusaders immediately abandoned Jerash and withdrew to Sakib (Seecip); the eastern border of the settlement.

Jerash was then deserted until it reappeared by the beginning of Ottoman rule in the early 16th century.

The census of 1596, had a population of 12 Muslim households. However, archaeologists found a small Mamluk hamlet in the Northwest Quarter which indicates that Jerash was resettled before the Ottoman era.

The excavations conducted since 2011 have shed light on the Middle Islamic period as recent discoveries have uncovered a large concentration of Middle Islamic/Mamluk structures and pottery.

The ancient city has been gradually revealed through a series of excavations that commenced in 1925.

Jerash today is home to one of the best-preserved Greco-Roman cities, which earned it the nickname of “Pompeii of the East”.

Approximately 330,000 visitors arrived in Jerash in 2018, making it one of the most visited sites in Jordan.

The city hosts the Jerash Festival, one of the leading cultural events in the Middle East that attracts tens of thousands of visitors every year.
