|Ajloun – Anjara – Tel Mar Elias,
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.
