Our last site to see was Jerash. It was established by Alexander the Great in 331 B.C. and later expanded as a Roman city, one of the Decapolis cities.
Much of the city was toppled by the earthquake in 749 A.D., but it is one of the best preserved sites.
The pillars of the Temple of Artemis remained standing despite the earthquake.
We had a guide and it was worthwhile. Sometimes the guides can get in the way of the experience (such as the one at the Citadel). This guide went slowly, told us important information without it being too much and gave us lots of time to take pictures and enjoy ourselves.
