Jordan Tourist Attraction - Um Rassas

Excavations here have uncovered some of the finest Byzantine church mosaics in the Middle East, including a large carpet depicting old and new Testament cities on both the east and west banks of the Jordan River. Another feature at Um Rassas walled settlement is a 15-meter Byzantine tower used by early Christian monks seeking solitude. Known in Arabic as Mayfa'ah this site is believed to be the place where the prophet Muhammad had his encounter as a child with the Christian monk Bahira. It is also where the Meccan Hanif Zeid bin 'Amr heard the prediction that there would arise a great prophet in Mecca.
