www.cheapjordanreleases.com Located in western Jordan, the city of Madaba has been famous for its mosaics since antiquity. Once an important Byzantine center, the city is home to the most famous mosaic in Jordan ― the Madaba Map. Unearthed toward the end of the nineteenth century, the Madaba Map is the oldest known map of the region historically known as Palestine and its surrounding areas. The map clearly shows al-Quds (Jerusalem),authentic jordans, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Dead Sea, the Jordan River, Nablus, al-Khalil (Hebron), Ariha (Jericho), Egypt, Turkey, and Lebanon.

Made around a.d. 560, this vivid Byzantine mosaic adorns the floor of the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George, which was built over the remains of a Byzantine church. The map originally measured 72 feet (22 m) by 23 feet (7 m) and was composed of over 2.3 million colored pieces. Although parts of the map have eroded over time, its more than 150 inscriptions in Greek are still legible. The centerpiece of the map is the walled city of Jerusalem, with its walls, gates, streets, and major buildings. Rivers, the sea, and mountains are also represented on the map. Palm trees dot the oases in the Jordan Valley and ships are shown in the Dead Sea.
