Travel Through Jordan Land Of Temples Fortresses And Mosaics Day One Travel Guides Downloadzip


Is the most ancient route in the World that is still used. Lining both sides of this 335 kilometer (208 miles) thoroughfare is a rich chain of archaeological sites that reads like an index of ancient history and a biblical gazetteer -- prehistoric villages from the Stone Age, biblical towns from the Kingdoms of Ammon, Moab and Edom, Crusader Castles, some of the finest early Christian Byzantine mosaics in the Middle East, a Roman-Herodian fortress, several Nabataean temples, two major Roman fortresses, early Islamic towns, and the rock-cut Nabataean capital of Petra. Kings' Highway was the route that Moses (pbuh) wished to follow as he led his people north through the land of Edom, which is in southern Jordan. The name may, however, derive from the even earlier episode recounted in Genesis 14, when an alliance of "4 kings from the north" marched their troops along this route to do battle against the 5 kings of the Cities of the Plain, including the wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. The invading monarchs captured Lot, Abraham's nephew (pbut), before retreating, only to be chased and overpowered near Damascus by Abraham, who rescued Lot before continuing his mission. This may have happened around 5000 years ago.

By land: It is possible to travel to Jordan by land from the UK, but it can be a long and arduous journey. You will need to travel by ferry from the UK to continental Europe and then through several other countries by bus or train before reaching Jordan. 350c69d7ab
