Jerash, Part V: Amphitheatre

Like any usual Roman historical site, usually there’s a Roman amphitheatre. It can accommodate around 3000 people at one time. Well, if you wanna get more info, you can pretty much Google it.

There’s a musical performance inside conducted by two Jordanians, wearing military suit. It’s a military bagpipe play. It’s free but of course, you should chip in some donation, dude. Don’t get me wrong, it ain’t a street performance. Perhaps, it's a courtesy performance from the Ancient Jerash authority.

The stage.

When we entered the amphitheatre, the performers were relaxing and brewing some tea. But, when we left the place and some Western visitors come in, they started to play. We felt ignored.
