Description:

Jesus Baptismal Site is located on the banks of the Jordan River and is thought to be the site of Jesus’ baptism by John the Baptist in the New Testament. Christian tradition marks this site as the place of the “spiritual birth” of Jesus as opposed to his physical birth in Bethlehem and is an important site of pilgrimage. After undergoing restorations, Qasr El Yahud is now open to visitors.
