A tranquil and peaceful place on the banks of the Jordan. You can be baptised there if you want and they do supply robes towels and changing facilities. Most interesting place

The interesting thing here is that you can see all the fish in the river which may be normal but not part of the Bible story you are familiar with. The river teams with life and so does the baptised person.

the Jordon river was a great time for us. I was able to baptize a couple of good friends there. The fish will nibble at your feet if you stand still to long

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.
