Bethany baptism site marks the place where Jesus was baptised by John. It is considered to be one of the three holiest Christian sites in the world, together with Bethlehem and Jerusalem.
This site has been recognized by most of the major traditional Christian Churches and has been visited by many Christian leaders including the late Pope John Paul II. Churches of many different denominations are built here, or are in the process of being built.
Many other world leaders, Christians and non-Christian, have also visited the site. Baptism at the site can be arranged with local ministers but are subject to availability. Combine your religious trip with a visit to Mount Nebo and Madaba the Mosaic City to complete your holy circuit trip.
Mount Nebo is an elevated ridge in Jordan, approximately 817 meters above sea level, mentioned in the Bible as the place where Moses was granted a view of the Promised Land that he would never enter. The view from the summit provides a panorama of the Holy Land and, to the north, a more limited one of the valley of the River Jordan. The West Bank city of Jericho is usually visible from the summit, as is Jerusalem on a very clear day
