Mount Nebo, a thunderous place, was the place where the last moment of the life of Moses, the greatest prophet of the Old Testament and the god-man, was called. At that time, Moses was ordered by the Lord to lead the enslaved Hebrews to escape from ancient Egypt and go to Canaan. Ground. After more than 40 years of arduous trek, in the end, I can only watch the Canaan Holy Land "flowing honey and milk" sleep here.
Mount Nebo is very close to the small town of Madaba. It is said that this is the place where Moses was buried, and it is now a pilgrimage site. On the viewing platform by the church, a sculpture designed by an Italian is particularly conspicuous, describing the suffering of Jesus on the cross. The interior of the church is not very big, it is actually a colonnaded hall, but it will surprise you. Both on the walls and underground are large-scale mosaic maps. The scale and completeness of these mosaic maps are truly amazing. These mosaics can be traced back to 530 years, and it is not easy to reach such a level at that time. The most representative masterpiece is the scene of nomads grazing, combining humans and animals, and decorating them with trees. When I was in Madaba, the owner of a souvenir shop once told me that the tree on the mosaic meant a cycle of life for them.
This place is not included in the Jordan pass. Tickets must be bought separately. Because this place is private. Yes, you read that right, this religious place where Moses ascended to heaven was actually bought by the French and developed into a tourist attraction. This is actually a mountain top, and all the places for tourists to visit are basically based on the "Bible". Only the inconspicuous little tattered museum houses precious local cultural relics, see the last three pictures. It is a pity that many tourist groups hardly go in. When I was there, I saw countless aunts come here to take pictures and check in. But almost no Chinese tour guide takes them to see the antiques and monuments that are truly worth seeing. A large group of people crowded in front of the newly built cross to take pictures, picture seven. For most people, traveling is just a show of excitement.
