Madaba - Mount Nebo


We will leave Amman to visit Madaba a city known for its mosaics. The most popular and well known is the ancient and most complete mosaic map of Jordan and the Holy Land of the 6th century in St George Orthodox Church, marked with the points of interest of some historical stories recorded in the Bible. Nearby is the revered Mount Nebo, where Moses climbed to survey the promised land. Mount Nebo is the memorial of Moses where it's believed to be buried there, 4th century church built for the memorial of Moses.

Jordan is a unique and blessed land of the Old and New Testaments and early years of Islam. The litany of ancient place names reads like biblical gazetteer Edom, Moab, Ammon, Gilead, Gad and Peraea.
The Madaba of the Bible is today the small town of Madaba.
At Church of St. George you can view the earliest surviving original map of the Holy Land, which was made around A. D. 560. In addition, there are other mosaic floors.
