The most sacred site in Jordan, Mt Nebo is believed to be the
burial site of Moses who climbed the hill in order to survey the
Promised Land that he would never enter. Situated on the edge of a
plateau about six miles (10km) from Madaba, Mt Nebo affords
spectacular views towards Jerusalem, whose spires are visible on a
clear day, and across the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea. A modern
day shrine sits on the ruins of a 6th-century Byzantine monastery,
and affords protection to the original floor mosaics, while in the
grounds stands the symbolic Serpentine Cross.
Opening Time: Daily 5am-7pm (April to October), 7am-5pm (November
