One of the famous place of pilgrimage in Israel is Yardenit. It is a remarkable site filmed for you in 360° by the team of 360HolyPlaces™.
Here the water flows into the Jordan River, ending its course in the Dead Sea much further south. This site is according to some traditions, the actual site where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.
“Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John” (Matthew)
Many Christian pilgrims come to this site and organize baptismal ceremonies. They usually come in groups to bathe in white clothes. The site is located at the southern exit of the Sea of Galilee, just behind the gate of the dam which is used on rainy winters to lower the level of the lake . The baptism site has a large parking area, convenient cloakrooms, a staircase to descend into the waters, a restaurant and a shop
