Temple of Dushara
معبد ذو الشرى
Also known as Qasr al-Bint, this large temple was built in the 1st century BCE by Obodas III. The temple stood at the end of a long, sacred precinct (temenos), starting from a gate at the end of the Colonnade Street. The altar in front of the temple was the place for public worship, while the temple housed images of the gods. The temple originally had a staircase leading to a portico supported by four columns and to the arched entrance still standing today. The three inner chambers might have been dedicated to three gods: Al Uzza, Ba’al-Shamin, and Dushara. The impressive roof spans exceed those of later Roman temples in Jerash.
