13 Temple of Dionysus in Ancient Jerash, Jordan

These stairs led to the Roman Temple of Dionysus when it was built during the 2nd century. It was dedicated to Dionysus, the mythological god of the grape harvest and wine. After Emperor Constantine the Great declared the eastern part of his territory (the Byzantine Empire) to become Christian (Eastern Orthodox Church) in the early 4th century, this temple was converted into the Cathedral.
