16 Niche Close Up of Nymphaeum in Ancient Jerash, Jordan

When the Nymphaeum was built in 191 AD, the lower half of this magnificent fountain was adorned with marble while the upper half was covered with plaster which may have been painted with frescos. Carved across the face of this two-story structure are over a dozen square and rounded niches. Statues once stood within these recesses on heavy stone plinths (bases).
