Must see · Mountain · Nature / Park
Join thousands of religious pilgrims and curious visitors at Mount Nebo, a 1,000 m (3,300 ft) ascent from which many believe the prophet Moses first saw the "Promised Land." Because of its mention in the Hebrew Bible, a chapel was built there in the 4th century CE and later expanded into a basilica. Today, the Franciscan order oversees the mountain, where they operate a monastery and archaeological center. While there, tour the memorial church devoted to Moses and the ancient Byzantine mosaics unearthed and preserved there.

  • Must see place in jordan .. just 30 minutes drive from amman. Place is on the top of a hill. Ticket is 2.JD. the top you can see 5 countries. Many new development and architecture stuff are there...  more »
  • A beautiful display of history with the mosaics wonderfully laid out. Exceptional place to look upon the Holy land and across the Jordan Valley and Dead Sea.  more »
  • You can have amazing view from this mountain top. All the way to Israel, the Dead Sea and loads of famous places. Unfortunately this is also a very cheesy place, filled with religious fanatics.  more »

  • One of the places of interest in Jordon. Very good and high scenic view of places in Israel. Moses went up there before the Jews entered the promised land.
  • Holy place for Christianity.. it’s very high place and vantage point to check out Israel . Ancient mosaic arts preserved here.
  • I’m not religious, so this didn’t invoke any real sentiment from me in that aspect; however, being able to see a vast desert landscape, as well as a dust devil along the way, was unique and memorable enough in itself.
  • Great place with nice scenery. Feel how Moses’ efforts are made.
  • A great historic place. It's clean and well taken care of.
