In addition to the spectacular views, the mountaintop stands out as the home to a group of monks who the site and church that dates back to the fourth century. When you go inside the church, you’ll find the remains of Jordan’s most well-preserved floor mosaics from the time period.
Additionally, exotic animal species decorate the floor with the battle scenes of warriors. The brightness of the tile’s colors is quite impressive and only look a few decades old instead of their 1,700-year long history.

It’s located somewhere on this hilltop, amongst many caves that dot the hillside that John the Baptist is believed to have lost his head.
While not the most of ruins remain after being destroyed b invading Romans and earthquakes, there are few places in Jordan that boast such splendid scenery. The climb around the hill and the mountaintop offer 360-degree views of the entire area.

This sighting is famous for the fact that it’s one of two sites competing for recognition as the place where Jesus cased out demons into pigs. Today this site offers impressive views of Jordan, Israel, the Palestinian Territories, and Syria. The ruins seen here while not as impressive as Jerash, are well worth a visit in their own term.
