remains of ancient city of Gerasa Heritage Values, Stakeholders, and Consensus Building
A project of the Getty Conservation Institute

Present day remains of the ancient city of Gerasa. The remains continue to exhibit key elements of the Roman-era city plan, including the Oval Plaza (foreground) and the Cardo, the collonaded road that served as the city's north-south axis. Comparison with the historic image taken a century earlier shows that the modern city of Jarash has grown over the archaeological remains of the ancient city's residential area.
