Interesting place expecially for Christians. Otherwise not very special or interesting for atheists. Place is absolutely free of charge. There is only one medium-price gift shop and free toilets and showers (after babtism in the Jordan river).

What an experience for us to be baptised on the Joran River. It was spiritual moment with our Lord. Don't miss the opportunity to experience the encounter.

This stop is normally combined with other destinations, as it was in our case. We stopped briefly. Upon arrival, various groups were using the river entries for baptisms/rebaptisms. The site occupies a rather small part of the "river"....more the size of a creek at this...More

Not sure about the Israel side. From Jordan side, no bus. You can take a taxi to the site, but you will have to ask your taxi to wait for you. Due to tight security around the area, you don't see many taxis to hail there. I... More
