The City of Madaba in Jordan

By Seif Kamel
  The city of Madaba is among the most distinctive touristic destinations
tourists who travel to Jordan are keen to explore. Located only 33
kilometers to the South West of Amman, the Jordanian capital, this
makes it a wonderful destination for day and half-day tours.
   The city was established by the Kingdom of Moab around the 13 th
century BC. It played a significant role during the Byzantine period.
Madaba hosted a large number of churches.
   The major attractions of the city of Madaba include ancient Byzantine
mosaics that are included inside the famous Archeological Park of the
city. There are also the mosaics of the ancient Roman camp that was
founded around the middle of the 5 th century BC.
