Travelstick Madaba Jordan


Most of the main attractions in Madaba are located close together in the town center along with a fairly large selection of hotels and restaurants. For cheaper eating options head back to the main road by the bus station.

The Spring of Moses (Ayoun Musa) is one of two possible sites in Jordan where Moses, according to the bible, struck a rock with his staff and created a spring. The spot is recognisable by the six great eucalyptus trees that grow above it. Beneath the overhanging cliff a tiny spring of clear water bubbles up from the rocks.

To walk to the spring take the road to the right about 1 km before Mount Nebo church. The road winds down for about 2 km and is fairly steep in places. Near the bottom, at a junction in the road, look out for the grove of tall eucalyptus tree beside an abandoned concrete building.

Entrance free (2020)
