Machaerus & Ma’een Springs

Further south from Mount Nebo, and off the King’s Highway, is the biblical site of Machaerus (Makwair), the hilltop fort of Herod the Great and the place where John the Baptist was beheaded on the request of Salome.

Southwest of Madad lie the Ma’een natural spring waters. The hot spring come gushing down a huge mountain and bring a wealth of therapeutic minerals to treat various skin and bone diseases.
