Half Day Baptismal Site of Bethany
The Baptism Site (In Arabic named: El-Maghtas) on the Jordan side of the Jordan River is one of the most important recent discoveries in biblical archaeology where John the Baptist lived and Jesus was baptized. This area is not only associated with Christianity but also related to the three divine religions: Jewish, Christian, and Islam with the ascension of the Prophet Elijah into heaven. This Bethany should not be confused with Bethany in Holy Land, where Mary Magdalene lived and Lazarus was raised from the dead. It is just a unique place to visit and a most to complete your pilgrimage tour.
