Yardenit, Kinneret

(3.1/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. Take a look at our Kinneret itinerary builder to schedule your visit to Yardenit and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
