Visit The third most holy site for Christians in the world, after the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Church of the Nativity, is the site of the baptism of Jesus Christ, known in Arabic as al-Maghtas. Excavations at Wadi Kharrar carried out after the 1994 peace treaty found evidence of a complex of churches, hermit cells and other buildings described in the writings of many pilgrims who have visited the site since the 2nd century AD. Now preserved as a tourist destination, al-Maghtas attracts tourists year-round.
The mountaintop fortress, now called Mukawer (Machaerus), commands panoramic views over much of the Dead Sea and the hills of Palestine and the Holy Land. It was here that Herod Antipas imprisoned John the Baptist, and later had him beheaded after Salome’s fateful dance.
