Gerasa was probably founded by veterans of Alexander the Great’s army in the Hellenistic period.

In the Roman period it was a thriving city, member of the “Decapolis, and so may have been visited by Jesus.

The city was abandoned in the middle ages, but its remains are exceptionally well preserved. In fact it is one of the best examples in the world for a Roman designed urban center.
