This site shows how Baptism was carried out in the past. The seemingly easy way and access made it memorable. However it as not as big as I thought.

This wasn't a plan stop on our tour but was so worth the stop. I am not religious but was still exciting to put your feet in the water. The water was not the nicest but still excited.

I was disappointed in this site, but I think that was because we had a very disinterested guide. We had no choice with the guide - you just get on a bus with the guide who is there. Apparently there is an audio guide but...More

Not the easiest place to find but it allows tourists an up close and personal experience. Arriving at the ticket location, travellers are to purchase a ticket and wait for the shuttle to the location. The shuttle leaves every 30 mins. The path around the...More
