Roman Amphitheatre, Bosra, Syria.

Bosra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, once the capital of the Roman province of Arabia, was an important stopover on the ancient caravan route to Mecca, a 2nd-century Roman theatre, early Christian ruins and several mosques are found within its walls, and all around local people have used for centuries parts of the ruins to build their own houses
