Church of St George

The Greek Orthodox  Church of St George in Madaba Jordan just down the street from the hotel has a large map done  in mosaics on the floor. This map is considered the oldest map in the world and fragments that are left show parts of the Middle East including the Jordan River, the Dead Sea, and parts of Jordan and Israeli. This photo shows a board outside with the map with locations marked.
