Pilgrims flock to Yardenit, a popular baptism and pilgrimage spot on the Israeli side of the Jordan River. Although Jesus is believed to have been baptized in Al-Maghtas, on the Palestinian side of the river, this site served as a substitute for the original baptism location after the Six-Day War until it reopened in 2011. Join the flocks of pilgrims from all over the world and of different faiths, who come here to see the holy river, buy a bottle of the sacred water, and participate in a baptism ritual.

  • Any Christian who has a chance should visit the baptismal site of Jesus, which is located on the banks of the Jordan River. It's a thrill to know the same place where Jesus was and was baptized. The site has a very positive energy. I just visited the site, was not part of the Group baptism. For those who want to christen, have to be scheduled in advance.
