Astounding and breath taking views. The climb up is gentle and easily within the capabilities of an unfit person such as I. The thought that I could be walking the same path that Moses did filled me with awe. The church itself is quite something. Definitely worth the entrance fee if you're a foreigner. What are you waiting for, go see it!
An excellent memorial and archeological site. Good guide. An excellent place of worship. We had a good guide. Excellent views of the valley. Peace and serenity.
It's a quite new building, built over a historic place. The building houses ancient mosaics from the Byzantine era. The mosaics exhibition is the best part of the church. The far end is for masses. The stone seats in this area are original. The remains of an old monastery is next to this building.
Nice church that reminds us that Moses (also known as Moshe, or Mousa in different religions) himself climbed this mountain. On this site are also ancient mosaics which quite interestingly depict wild animals from Africa, clearly already known to the people of the Middle East in those times.
This place is in Madaba. It isn't really far from Amman. Around half an hour by car from the center of the city. The church and the whole place is more than amazing!! It is breathtaking, very peaceful. You can see the dead sea from there, as well as you can see Palestine too. I highly recommend that everyone should visit the memorial church of Moses whenever they visit Jordan ❤️
