Conferences & Events


Jerash is an ideal location for incentive events, company outings and corporate get-togethers. Its historical setting offers a unique backdrop for any of the numerous activities that take place there.

Jerash's proximity to Jordan's capital, Amman, means that a selection of world-class facilities for meetings and conferences, together with excellent hotels, can be found within a short distance. Meanwhile, the beauty and history of Northern Jordan are a stone's throw away and can be visited easily by car or coach. They are well worth a visit and make a relaxing day away.

The hippodrome has ten starting gates (carceres), as opposed to the usual twelve, which have now been reassembled from the rubble with other missing stones quarried and rebuilt. The seating area (cavea) was 4m deep with sixteen rows of seats. The seats accommodated 15,000 spectators who, it is said, were Greek-speaking even during Roman times.

Guidebooks, maps and information are available from the Visitors' Centre near the South Gate.
