It's not a big site, relatively close to Madaba. When we were there we were alone but that shouldn't deter you from visiting. It's interesting to spend some time wondering the ruins while the mosaics are nice to see.

This isn’t a site for someone who wants to see the fallen rubble of ancient buildings reconstructed into fair representations of their former glory. The bulk of the site is literally still rubble...massive piles of rubble with the tops of ceiling arches rising from the...More

It could be a beautiful place but it is almost not worth a visit. The visitors center was closed and only a tourism police was there. No information available, you can enter the site and visit at your own risk. The preservation is miserable and...More

Forget Madaba. Drive on by. It isn't worth the stop. This however is easily the most underrated attraction in Jordan. This is the largest mosaic in Jordan and is perfectly preserved. It is really an amazing work of art and in all likelihood you will...More

Beautiful bizantine mosaics in the St. Stephen's Church floor are highly recommended. But the site is not so good and seems to be abandoned...I bought a handcrafted kefiah in the shop. The women of the village did
