Jaresh, Jordan

This is the temple of Artemis at the superbly preserved Roman City of Jaresh in Jordan. What's so impressive is the that the pillars are morticed and tenonned not cemented at the joints deliberately so they won't fall down in earthquakes.
I was amazed walking around here at their ingenuity and the fact that their theatres are stil used for concerts today. Amazing how we underestimate the ancients and regard them as inferior in so many ways.
Have nice day now whevever you are.
