About Umm Qais

Umm Qais was once the Decapolis city of Gadara. Although not as extensive as Jerash, the ruins cover periods from Roman rule to the Ottomans and provide sweeping views over the Sea of Galilee and the Golan Heights, and a peaceful experience. The city remained unrecognised for about 1000 years and only in the 19th century became alive again.
