remains of ancient city of Gerasa Heritage Values, Stakeholders and Consensus Building

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.
