Jerash was a fantastic collection of Roman ruins, about 45 minutes by bus from Amman.
The bus cost about 25 pence to get there and about 5 pence to get back!

Hadrian's Arch was the main entrance to the site.

It was quite hot, but shorts are not allowed in most places!

The next day we visited the Desert Castles to the East of Amman.
