Mount Nebo is one of the most revered holy sites of Jordan, for this is from where Moses, 'the servant of the Lord' and 'the friend of God' (Deuteronomy 3249 and 345) viewed the Promised Land and the Dead Sea, after leading his people through the desert for forty years. If the sky is clear Jerusalem, Jericho and Bethlehem will meet your eye.

Centuries ago, the pilgrims flocked to Mount Nebo on their final destination to visit the sanctuary dedicated to Moses and the Prophet's dead and burial place. In the Moses Memorial Church the walls and floors are decorated with beautiful mosaics. The church dates back to the sixth century.
