Umm Qais

Ruins of the Decapolis cities of Gadara (now called Umm Qais) with the view of 3 countries.
Umm Qais, situated 110 km (68 miles) north of Amman on a broad promontory 378 m above sea level with a magnificent view over the Yarmouk River, the Golan Heights, and Lake Tiberias, this town was known as Gadara, one of the most brilliant ancient Greco-Roman cities of the Decapolis; Umm Qais’s charm still lingers today. A large portion of the western Roman Theater and many more has survived history's upheavals.
