Destination Must-See's

Jordan ms1

Wadi Rum:

The Wadi Rum consists of 74,200 hectares/286 square miles of desert that represent millions of years of ongoing landscape evolution. There is proof of human occupation dating back over 12,000 years in petroglyphs, inscriptions, and archaeological sites. Because of this it is considered both a natural and cultural wonder. It consists of narrow gorges, natural arches, towering cliffs, ramps, and massive landslides and caverns.

Jordan ms2


It is both the modern and ancient capital of Jordan. There is an intriguing blend of modern buildings with the remnants of ancient civilians. This is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. It was also referred to as Rabbath-Ammon in the Old Testament and the “city of waters.”

Jordan ms3

The Church of St. George:

Visit the Church of St. George to see the famous Byzantine mosaic map, known to be one of the oldest in existence. The map is extraordinarily significant as it represents the oldest map of Palestine and provides many historical insights into the area. It depicts all of the major biblical sites in the Middle East ranging from Egypt to Palestine.

Jordan ms4

Mt. Nebo:

Mentioned in the bible as the place where Moses was granted a view of the Promised Land, the view from Mt. Nebo offers a panorama of the Holy Land and the River Jordan. On a clear day, Jerusalem can be seen from there as well.
