Came with our church group and got baptized in the Jordan river. Yes it is not where Jesus got baptized and it quite commercial and busy, but nonetheless it was a very special moment. Robe and towels are provided as well as showers.

To be honest I always wanted to get baptized in the river Jordan. Here you have the chance. Unfortunately it is not believed that Christ was baptized here. It is more likely that it was in the Jordan river closer to Jericho.

The Bible comes alive in this ordinary-looking river - where St. John the Baptist baptized his cousin Jesus Christ, and God the Father acknowledged His Son thru the Holy Spirit. Wow! Few other places in Israel can top the significance of this place to Christianity....More

We came to the Jordan River on the Israel side. It's not as wide as i pictured it to look. It's muddier than i pictured it as well. However, it's a neat place to go. It looks like they're building more visitor things to do...More
