At 10 kms to the north-west of Madaba, lie a group of rocky mountain peaks collectively called as Mount Nebo. Mount Nebo holds a special religious significance for Christians and Jews. According to the Bible, it was from here that Moses was granted a view of the Promised Land, that God had forbidden him to enter and this was the site of his demise. Perched high on the peak is the Moses Memorial Church, offering spectacular views of the Jordan Valley, the Dead Sea and Israel.
