Mount Nebo, Madaba
Join thousands of religious pilgrims and curious visitors at Mount Nebo, a 1,000 m (3,300 ft) ascent from which many believe the prophet Moses first saw the "Promised Land." Because of its mention in the Hebrew Bible, a chapel was built there in the 4th century CE and later expanded into a basilica. Today, the Franciscan order oversees the mountain, where they operate a monastery and archaeological center. While there, tour the memorial church devoted to Moses and the ancient Byzantine mosaics unearthed and preserved there.

A holistic site in Jordan. As in the Old Testament, it's believed that this is the location where Moses looked at the Promise Land before he passed away.
The final resting place of Moses. From this site, one can viewed Canaan, the Promised Land, as mentioned in the Bible.
