Umm al Rassas | Jordan - Madaba, Mount Nebo and Umm al Rassas (IMG_7629.jpg)

Umm al Rassas

The area in and around Umm al Rassas abounds with churches that have the most magnificent works of mosaics. Inside the town walls are the ruins of four churches, while there are 12 churches outside it. The two most important are Byzantine churches of the 6th and 7th centuries that seem to have been used well into the Islamic period. Both have complete and well-preserved mosaic floors going back to the 6th century.
