Avenue of the Columns, Colonnade Street or Cardo Maximum

The street known as Colonnade Street or Cardo Maximus (commonly called the Avenue of the Columns) is one of the most famous images of Jerash. It was the city's main avenue, which ran from north to south and was 800 meters long. The most striking aspect of this broad avenue are the columns that flank both sides of the way and the stone paving, and still it retains the original stones (where the grooves are still visible of the carts, and under which there was a complete network of underground sewers in which they collected and stored rain water).
