Religious Sites in Jordan

20 minutes South from Amman is the city of Madaba, otherwise known as “The city of Mosaics”. On the top of a mountain with magnificent views, is the contemporary Greek Orthodox Church of St. George. In this church one can find a mosaic map of Jordan, Palestine and Egypt. The trip from Amman to Madaba follows the King’s Highway, 5000 years old, which passes through many ancient sites, representing the holy land.

Baptism Site
2000 years ago, it was believed Jesus was baptized in the holy site on the east bank of the Jordan River, a mere 44 kilometers west from Amman.
