Housed within an early Byzantine church, the map dates back to the 6th century and provides the earliest accurate depiction of the Middle East, focusing on Jerusalem. Look over this carefully excavated mosaic, with millions of colorful stones depicting an ancient landscape of Biblical locations, events, and regions that predate modern cartography. Drop by the gift shop to pick up a few mementos of your visit.

  • Very special experience - to realize how much we can learn about history and geography of the place just from one mosaic map discovered on the floor of a church!

  • This church is still used for worship so please take the visiting hours into consideration. Small and nice mosaic work on the walls and columns (mainly modern panels and icons). Perhaps the most impressive feature is the mosaic floor with a medieval map of the Levant at the time of the Crusades. Entry is not included with the Jordan Pass.
  • Nice church with impressive mosaic on the ground floor! Nice mosaic on the walls complement the visit. Pretty small so the entire visit will take about 15 mins.
