11 Features of The Cardo in Ancient Jerash, Jordan

Cardo Maximus is the main boulevard running north to south for about 660 yards through Jerash. On either side of this impressive colonnade were shops, public buildings, temples and squares. Look closely and you can see the groves formed by chariots that rumbled across the heavy stones for centuries. What you can’t see is equally impressive. Beneath the road is an underground sewer system designed to drain away rainwater. It still functions.
