Umm ar-Rasas Tour
To the east of Madaba tour is Umm Ar-Rasas tour , a very ancient site that is mentioned in both the Old and New tour Testaments of the Bible. The rectangular walled city tour is mostly in ruins but does still include several buildings, as well as four churches and some beautiful stone arches. The main attraction is outside the city walls within the Church of St. Stephen, which contains a very large, perfectly preserved mosaic floor laid down in 718 AD. It portrays fifteen major cities of the Holy Land from both east and west of the River Jordan tour . This magnificent mosaic is second only to Madaba’s world famous mosaic map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land tour .
