Jerash - The hippodrome, built sometime between the 1st and 3rd centuries.  This old sports ground (244m by 50m) was once surrounded by seating for up to 15,000 spectators and hosted mainly athletics competitions and chariot races.  Modern day chariot races are held twice daily, except Friday when there is one performance at 10am (I visited on a Friday and missed it).
