Mount Nebo

Mount Nebo is one of Jordan's prominent mountains, situated approximately forty one kilometers from its capital. The nearest Jordanian province to Mount Nebo is Madaba. This elevated mountain overlooks the Dead Sea, the Jordan River Valley, Jericho, and the distant hills of Jerusalem. It is the site where Moses viewed the Holy Land of Canaan but never entered. According to the Bible, Moses died and was buried in Moab.

Over the years, Mount Nebo became a pilgrimage site for early Christians arriving from Jerusalem. In the fourth century AD, a small church was constructed to commemorate the life of Moses. Some stones from that church still remain in their original place within the wall surrounding the church's sanctuary. The church underwent expansion in the fifth and sixth centuries, evolving into the large church we know today. The church houses remarkable collections of Byzantine mosaic panels.

Outside the church compound stands a bronze serpent, symbolizing the brass serpent lifted by Moses in the desert, and a cross, representing the crucifixion of Jesus. Mount Nebo stands as a significant historical and religious site, offering breathtaking views and preserving the spiritual legacy of Moses.
