It's a beautiful church located in the heart of Madaba.
The mosaic map inside the church is absolutely beautiful.
Don't hesitate to visit the gift and mosaic shops around the place. It's worth it.
I recommend visiting this place and walk around this area.

A Greek Orthodox Church in the city of Mudaba famous for its mosaic floor discovered in the 6th century.

The mosaic map on the floor was rediscovered in 1896 and the church built on top of it. Besides being famous for the oldest map in the region, the church walls are decorated with biblical murals and paintings giving the building a beautiful rustic feel.

Barely 30-40 mins outside Amman, there are a number of souvenir shops and cafes around the church. Also visit the visitor center for a full map of the King’s highway.

A very small church which stands over thousands of years. In the floor you will still see the maps that were drawn. If you go down into the church vestry you will see very old paintings. Ladies if you are wearing shorts, they will give you a gown to entre, so please make sure that you are not wearing shorts when entering the church. There is a small suvinior shop where you can purchase tickets to enter. There are many local guides standing out sidr the church who will guide you through the history of the church at an extra cost. Across from the church are small shops selling Dead Sea products and suviniors.

The Madaba Map that resides in this church is truly a remarkable piece of loving history. Regardless of whether you’re a devout Christian or not, it is hard to not be impressed by the historical significance of this map and the place the Church holds in biblical references.

One of the three remaining churches from Roman rule in Israel. Great, historic place of worship with a truly wonderful atmosphere. Do remember to take a look at the renowned mosaic map!

The Madaba mosaic map is part of the mosaic floor of an ancient church in the city of Madaba in Jordan, dating back to the Byzantine era. It is the oldest original map of the Holy Land, dating back to 560. Today it is located inside the Church of St. Guarajos in Madaba, built in 1896 above the remains of the Byzantine Church.

The map of Madaba extends over a portion of the church floor, and its dimensions are estimated at about 15.75 feet long and the city of Jerusalem is its center. Showing locations in Palestine, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Egypt

The oldest churche in Jordan.
Its also know as the Madaba Mosaic Map. "It is part of a floor mosaic in the early Byzantine church of Saint George in Madaba, Jordan. The Madaba Map is of the Middle East, and part of it contains the oldest surviving original cartographic depiction of the Holy Land and especially, Jerusalem. It dates to the sixth century AD."

Wonderful Mosaic Map in Madaba, would definitely recommend. It is very interesting to see where the old cities were located. The entry fee is only 1 JOD (the church is not included in the Jordan Pass).

Beautiful church with large ancient mosaic map on the floor. With a bit of sleuthing you can figure out some of the places on the map, or you can use the legend outside. You need a ticket to enter as a tourist (they can tell who is and who isn't). You get the ticket at the gift shop. The site held our interest for longer than we expected, not only by the mosaic but also by the lovely, more recent paintings coverng the walls. No dedicated parking. We parked on a nearby street. There are plenty of inexpensive restaurants surrounding this area.

The mosaic which represents the map of old Palestine is the major attraction point. The architecture is just marvelous.

I am a Muslim, but this is not a reason for you not to like the place because the religion of Islam is about freedom, not restriction, and it is really a beautiful place that I advise everyone to visit
