Like all the rest of the churchs and sites in Madaba, this is worth seeing. It shows how strong christianity was in this region and I think that its great that the Jordanians help preserve such history.

Orthodox Church of St. George has been built in 1884, when the Greek Orthodox community saved enough funds to start construction. But to the surprise of the builders, under it were the remains of a Byzantine dating back to the 3rd century. With 157 captions...More

This is worth a quick visit (30 mins.) to see the detailed workmanship of the mosaic map on the floor, which reflects the layout of Holy Land in the 6th century AD. Madaba can easily be visited on the way to/from Mt. Nebo, which is...More

This church houses the mosaic map of the earliest known version of the Holy land. Thought provoking and a must see. Entry not included in the Jordanian Pass.

Another place all the tour groups come to, it's best to get here early so you can see it alone. While I liked other mosaics more, this is very historical and quite amazing. It's pretty hard to figure out, but just enjoy the historical aspect...More
