Ajloun Tel Mar Elias Tour


From: Amman to Madaba, Nebo and Bethany Beyond the Jordan

Biblical One day tour, for Ajloun Tel Mar Elias

One Day:


 Ajloun – Anjara – Tel Mar Elias – Pella,

You will start your day by visiting Ajloun – Overlooking the windswept olive groves of Ajloun are the remnants of the humble beginnings of a man revered in the three Abrahamic faiths – Elijah.

Next is a visit to Anjara which is mentioned in the Bible as a place where Jesus, his mother Mary and his disciples, passed through and rested in a nearby cave.

The cave, which has long been a Holy place for pilgrims, has now been commemorated with a modern shrine / church of Our Lady of the Mountain.

Up the winding roads leading from the village of Wahadneh lies Tel Mar Elias, one of the largest Byzantine churches in Jordan and an ancient site of pilgrimage, worship and interfaith coexistence.

Inscriptions on the Byzantine church and its mosaics led many to believe that the structure was built in honor of Elias (Elijah),

The site is not to be confused with Tel Elias near the Baptism Site, which is where some believe Elijah ascended to heaven.

Then visit The sites of Penuel (modern-day Pella) and Mahanaim, where Jacob stopped during his .ightfrom Mesopotamiato Canaan, have long been identied with two sites in north-central Jordan – Telul ed-Dahab al-Gharbi and Telul ed-Dahab al-Sharqi (the eastern and western hills of gold).

Pella then known as Tabaqet Fahl, witnessed a determining battle between Muslims and Christian Romans.
