Al-Maghtas

Things to do: historic sites
Tourism in Al-Maghtas revolves around a single attraction--the alleged site of Jesus Christ's baptism in the River Jordan. As one of the world's premier destinations for Christian pilgrimage, Al-Maghtas draws a steady stream of the faithful, who come to immerse themselves in the waters along the river's eastern bank. The World Heritage Site lies within a pristine natural landscape, dotted by Roman and Byzantine ruins, churches, hermit caves, and monasteries.

Where to stay

Al-Maghtas offers very few accommodations, since people generally come here on day trips from other destinations. Staying in Amman, some 54 km (33.5 mi) away by car, gives you a wide range of lodging options. There, hotels run the gamut from splashy luxury to budget, with a solid selection of mid-range establishments. For more privacy, explore the wide set of rental apartments distributed throughout Amman--like the hotels, they range from opulent to basic.
