Tetrapylon is from the Greek word tetra meaning four, and pylon meaning gate. Tetrapylon is a monument at a major street intersection with arches on four sides, allowing traffic in all directions. Only the pedestals of the South Tetrapylon remain standing today. Heading east, the street leads first to the South Bridge, then to the East Baths, then the residential neighborhoods buried under modern Jerash, and finally, the East Gate. The ruins at the southwest corner of the tetrapylon belong to an Umayyad mosque from the 8th century CE. Farther west are the ruins of Umayyad houses.
At the intersection of the main street (cardo) and the first cross-street (south decumanus).
