Jordan & Israel: More Stories From the Holy Lands

Jordan & Israel: More Stories From the Holy Lands

The Kingdom of Jordan's history, like Israel's, dates back thousands of years; each is filled with ancient names, places and stories that are commonly known today, including many with religious significance. Our journey begins in Jordan, where we explore the Roman ruins of Pella; Umm Quis; Ajlun Castle, the base for Muslim Leader Saladin; the capital city of Amman, where we view its mosques, markets, Roman Theater, Temple of Hercules and Cave of the Seven Sleepers. In eastern Jordan we visit the desert castles of Qasr Amra; Qasr Kharanah; and Asraq, where T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) made his base. We see the remarkable mosaic floors in Madaba and Um er-Rasas; then Mount Nebo, where Moses is said to have died. Next Mukawir, where Herod the Great imprisoned John the Baptist; Kerak and Sobek, two 12th century Crusader castles; we meet Bedouins at Petra and desert police on camels in Wadi Rum; tour the Marine Science Station in Aqaba. In Israel we view King Solomon's Pillars in Timna Park; visit an alpaca and llama farm in the Negev Desert; explore an underground tunnel along the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem; enter the Druze village of Beit Jann; then, in the Jordan Valley, we view the Jobback River and end with the ruins at the Roman city of Jerash.
