Roman Forum Columns in Amman, Jordan - March 2012

www.lonelyplanet.com/jordan/amman/sights/square-plaza/forum

   

The row of columns immediately in front (north) of the Roman Theatre is all that's left of the Forum, once one of the largest public squares (about 100m by 50m) in Imperial Rome. Built in AD 190, the square was flanked on three sides by columns, and on the fourth side by the Seil Amman stream; almost everything (including the stream, which still runs) lies underneath the modern streets.
