Jordan travel guide

Jordan - Madaba & the King's Highway (Chapter)

8th Edition Jul 2012

This is the Madaba & the King’s Highway chapter from Lonely Planet’s Jordan guidebook.

Occupying the central highlands and interrupted by the mighty Wadi Mujib, Madaba and the points of interest that punctuate the King’s Highway lie at the heart of ancient Jordan. From prehistoric dolmens in rolling pastureland, panoramic sites of Biblical importance and exquisite Roman mosaics lying along old trade routes, to well-preserved Crusader castles, there is something fascinating to see along the entire length of this central region.

  • piece together early Christian history in the mosaics of Madaba and visit a modern workshop to see how they were made
  • maps
  • take shade under an ancient stone dolmen in Wadi Jadid
  • transport
  • survey the Promised Land – that took almost 2000 years to deliver and cost the region dearly – from Moses’ memorial at Mt Nebo
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Madaba, Mt Nebo, Wadi Jadid, Mukawir (Machaerus), Umm Ar-Rasas, Wadi Mujib, Ar-Rabba, Karak, Khirbet Tannour, Hammamat Burbita & Hammamat Afra, Tafila, Dana Biosphere Reserve and Shobak Castle.
