Shrine of Hud near Jerash

This shrine [Ar. maqam] of the prophet Hud is located on the top of a hill overlooking the Roman ruins at Jerash (classical "Gerasa") in northern Jordan. Some hold that this is the site of the tomb of Hud, and a small tomb can be found in the courtyard of this building. A cavern exists under the building also, but there is no tomb under the dome. The building is of modern construction.
