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. A visit to Yardenit represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Kinneret trip itinerary website to plot your vacation.

This is a 'mass-tourism' spot. Would not recommend unless you really want to get baptized yourself. Crowded and poor amenities. more »

The entrance was free and the place looked pretty good and well maintained. Also u can find a big souvenir shop with some really nice stuff. There were many groups of tourists but wasn't too crowded.
Really nice area where y ok u are able to be baptized. Facilities are clean and the area is beautiful. Worth the trip if you are in the area. Gift shop is actually very nice.
The baptismal place of Jesus. Getting baptized here makes the Bible come alive. A quiet serene setting for meditation.
I got baptized in the "JORDAN RIVER"!!!! that's all I can really say, can't really say it with words but probably the best experience you can have in Israel!
Great place to visit on you journey around the holy land. Not so sure about the "turn up and go" baptisms though. Certificate included 🤥
