Hadrian's Era in Jerash

The ancient city of Jerash on the shores of Lake Galilee

Many records of the past in this fascinating city, although the ruins give a deep impression, I can understand what has happened in this place. Tell me the story of Jesus casting out evil spirits, a story that took place on the eastern edge of the lake.

You can also see how people in those days built the Arch of Hadrian, a magnificent building as a tribute to the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the winter of 129-130.

I cross every inch of the area as if in this old city, at a time that might be hard for you to imagine. But one thing for sure, I was fascinated by this atmosphere.
