Cardo Maximus- Jerash, Jordan

Cardo Maximus or  the axis of the city, served as a hub of economic life. During  Roman times in Jerash, it was the main boulevard running north to south for about 660 yards through the city. On either side of this impressive colonnade were shops, public buildings, temples and squares.

Built in the 1st century AD , the street still bears the hallmarks of the city’s principal thoroughfare, with the ruts worn by thousands of chariots scored into the original flagstones  Beneath the road is an underground sewer system designed to drain away rainwater which still functions.
