View the Madaba Map in St. George's Church

Interred in the floor of St. George's Church in Madaba is one of the most important surviving artistic relics of the Byzantine era. The famous Madaba Map was once an intricate map of holy land sites covering modern-day Jordan, Israel, and the Palestinian Territories, plus Egypt's Sinai. Today only a quarter survives, but even this fragment shows astounding detail, covering Jerusalem, the Dead Sea area, and a small portion of the Sinai.
