Highlights:
A beautiful building in the ancient city, the temple is dedicated to the main god of Jerash, the moon god Artemis. The temple ruins on the wide platform are the essence of the Jerash ruins, she is like a diamond in the crown. Although the temple has collapsed, the remaining walls and towering columns are enough to demonstrate the temple's prominent position in the city. There are three rows of columns in front of the temple, six in each row, 20 meters high. Each column is divided into seven sections. The head and tail are the base and the crown. These intricately carved ochre red Collins capitals are beautiful.

Highlights:
In 129 AD, in order to welcome the visit of the Roman Emperor Hadrian, the Jerash people built a majestic triumphal arch in the south of the city, named "Hadrian's Arch of Triumph", and held large-scale celebrations. Although the years have made this majestic Arc de Triomphe full of vicissitudes, its heroic appearance still remains. Each stone pillar is carved with various patterns and exquisite craftsmanship, which reflects the architectural art of the Jordanians at that time. To the left of the Arc de Triomphe is a large-scale competition field of the year. You can go in and take a look at the museum. There are models of the ancient city of Jerash and tools used in the construction of that year.
