    We went here as we were staying nearby and it is a short morning activity. You arrive to the carpark and take a shuttle bus to the site itself where a tour guide then shows you around. Our tour guide was very good, spoke in English and Arabic and answered visitors questions. He waited patiently at each part of the tour so we had time for photos and to look around. The tour took around 1 hour, and 10 minutes each way for the shuttle bus. It is outside and there’s not lots of shade so I’d recommend bringing water. There’s also a lot of insects buzzing around so some insect repellent would be useful to wear. Overall an interesting morning activity which was very well organised.

    We really enjoyed our visit here. The bell tour gives a good view and going under the church is very interesting historically. Exceeded our expectations for sure!

    We visited this site, and were so grateful to have had a guide with us to explain the history and the folklore of the area. The grounds were extensive, with many different structures to explore. The views of the surrounding areas were breathtaking as we went late afternoon and watched the sunset. A lovely afternoon adventure.

    The colors of the mosque were nothing like I have seen before. Definitely worth the visit when in Amman.

    It’s a nice mosque, especially outside. I went inside, but it wasn’t that impressive.
    Women can’t go into the main areas. And it’s crowded during the prayer times.

    This is a must visit site in Petra, don’t miss it, take some time to walk around and explore what is left of this fascinating temple.

    What to do in Jordan? well this site is very close to Amman. Get a rental car and visit here and Mt Nebo where moses died. they are very close together. I did exactly that. in a day you can see both. This site is preserved very well. Nobody can say for sure the exact site of Jesus baptism, but this site is very close so that was good enough for me. There is an entrance fee to pay, and then the bus takes you with a guide for the tour. it takes about one hour. you can take a dip in the jordan river if you want to baptize your self.

    You will find the Great Mosque of Salt near Abu Jaber Museum by Al Ain Plaza. I was there on a Friday, the Muslim day for worship so i did not enter the mosque, but the website says that visitors are allowed.

    The Islamic Museum is next to the mosque but in the same compound. It is quite a small museum and not worth making a special trip unless you are really interested in Islamic Art. It is mostly pottery on display.

    Unfortunately i could not gain access to this church after visiting King Abdullah Mosque, but it is known locally as the Egyptian Coptic Church, which was constructed about 20 years ago, probably because of the number of Egyptians living in Amman.
