Photographer's Note

About 1 km east of Mount Nebo, you can see the spring of Moses (Ain Musa), mentioned by Egeria, Peter the Iberian, and Theodosius. In the springtime, this area is dotted by Eucalyptus trees, which grow close to two churches built in the 6th century, with enchanting mosaics: the churches of Deacon Thomas and Kayanos which were adorned with another mosaic pavement in the seventh Century. The churches were destroyed by a powerful earthquake which hit the region in AD 749.

The Promised Land and Jericho can be seen in the background
