Madaba, Jordan: 41 reviews and 76 photos


<font size=3 color=purple><b>Madaba</b>
<font size=3 color=purple></b>If you go south from Amman along the 5,000-year-old King's Highway (which is said to be one of the most memorable journeys in the Holy Land, passing through a string of ancients sites), the first city you come upon is Madaba, 'the City of Mosaics'. Madaba's chief attraction -in the contemporary Greek Orthodox church of St.George- is a wonderfully vivid, sixth-century Byzantine mosaic map showing Jerusalem and other holy sites.
