Overview

Pick up from Ammandrive to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Um Ar Rasas, where you’ll be able to see the remains of several Byzantine Churches and their
mosaics. This site is mentioned in the Bible (Jeremiah 48:21 and Joshua 13:18) as Mephaath, and also appears in the writings of the Christian historian Eusebius from
500 CE.
Next, you’ll drive to the hilltop fortress of Machaerus, which belonged to King Herod. This site located on the border of Herod Antipas’ and the King of Petra’s (Aretas)
territories, and is believed to be the place where John the Baptist was imprisoned and executed.
Lot’s Cave, on a steep hillside near the town of Ghor Safi. Remains excavated from the cave show it was first used 5,000 years ago. This is where Abraham’s nephew
Lot and his daughters are said to have sheltered after fleeing the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Although there are ruins of a Byzantine-era church here, as well as an inscription in the cave—indicating that the site has long been identified with Lot—it is also
possible that the true site of his cave is further north.
Then, you’ll drive about an hour, until you reach Kerak, a large Crusader Castle which includes a church and a museum displaying Moabite artifacts. Kerak is mentioned
several times in the Old Testament by various names. (See Isaiah 15,16 and Jeremiah 48). Drop off in Amman.
