This beautiful, quiet spot on the Jordan River is the perfect place for a baptism or rededication. Bring your own pastor, or they provide one. They also provide a towel and robe and showers. Bring your own soap, shampoo and hair dryer.

Religious people know the place and bus loads from all over the world come for (second) baptismal. Worth watching in any case.

This is a very interesting place. Somewhere on the Jordan River John the Baptist baptised Jesus. I am curious about why the water was so green. There were a lot of fish in the water. It was very beautiful.

Here on the Jordon river is a site familiar with the Baptism site. It is not the true site but very close to where John the Baptist did perform baptisms. Very busy site and a tourist trap in that one must enter and leave thru...More

My heart sank when we entered a huge car park full of tourist buses. Next, we had to enter through a huge complex selling over-priced souvenirs, most of which had probably been manufactured in China. Outside, there is very little to eat and drink unless...More
