005- Roman Period
Propylaeum is an ornate, monumental gateway leading from the main street (cardo) up to the Artemis Temple. Built in 150 CE, the Propylaeum was originally approached from the east via a street called the Sacred Way. This street started from the residential neighborhoods buried under modern Jerash and ended at the main street (cardo) in front of the Propylaeum. The Sacred Way was sealed off in the Byzantine period to build the Propylaeum Church, opposite the Propylaeum, incorporating the street’s columns into the church. North of the church are the ruins of the Ayyubid or Mamluk Naghawi’s Mosque, built between the 12th and 15th centuries.
On the main street (cardo) just north of the nymphaeum.
