Jordan : Dead Sea, Mount Nebo, St. George’s Church Madaba

jordan.jpg

Hi Everyone, πŸ™‚

We are travelling in Jordan at the moment. Honestly, this was totally Sanjeev’s brainchild. I had no clue about what I was looking forward to. After some initial hiccup at the start (later on that), my trip to Jordan has literally blown my mind away. I thought Bali was my best travel destination so far. But I have to admit Jordan has beaten every single place I have ever been to hands down. It’s a traveller’s paradise. The rich culture, the architecture, the respect for women, the people, the history and OMG, the food. It’s perfection. We covered Dead Sea, St George’s Church and Mount Nebo on our day 1. These the pics. Hope you enjoy going through them.

Oh, I think I would smuggle tons of hummus from here. πŸ˜›

Also, I am not posting about this trip on Facebook for personal reasons. You may follow me on instagram for day-to-day updates. πŸ™‚

Madaba is best known for its superb, historically significant Byzantine era mosaics. Madaba’s most famous site is the Mosaic map in the 19th century Greek Orthodox St George’s Church. Unearthed 1864, the mosaic was once a clear map with 157 captions (in Greek) of all major biblical sites from Lebanon to Egypt. The mosaic was constructed AD 560 & once contained more than 2 million pieces, only 1/3 of the whole now survives.

The famous mosaic work of Jordan - the whole painting is made out of natural stones. Each carved painfully with a chisel and hammer and placed on  the board.

Mount Nebo is an elevated ridge in Jordan, approximately 817 meters (2680 feet) above sea level, mentioned in the Bible as the place where Moses was granted a view of the Promised Land that he would never enter. The view from the summit provides a panorama of the Holy Land and, to the north, a more limited one of the valley of the River Jordan.

The Dead Sea/ The Sea of Death also called the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordering Jordan to the east and Israel to the west. Its surface and shores are 427 metres (1,401 ft) below sea level,[3] Earth’s lowest elevation on land.

One of the most epic things I have done till date. : D  Reading book on the dead sea.
