Weather of Arabia - Jordan is famous for its many distinctive tourist places, and Madaba is one of the Jordanian cities that includes unique landmarks, especially ancient mosaics.
But today we are talking about another thing that distinguishes the city of Madaba, which is Jabal Mukawir and its wonderful views, as it is considered one of the few places in Jordan from which the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem and the Dome of the Rock appear.
On Mount Makawir, the Makawir Castle is located at a height of 715 meters above sea level, and is characterized by its wonderful views of the Dead Sea. It is considered one of the most wonderful monuments in Jordan, and one of the most beautiful tourist places in Madaba.
Mukawir Castle is located 32 km southwest of the city of Madaba, near the village of Mukawir. The village of Mukawir is a small village located in the southeast of the Ma’in baths. Mukawir is one of the areas of interest to Muslims and Christians alike, in which the story of the Prophet Yahya, peace be upon him, took place.
The castle overlooks the Dead Sea and other sites from the West Bank, and the castle today does not exist, but the remains of the castle, its walls, towers, channels, columns, and the huge stones on top of the hill indicates the grandeur of the place. The oldest mosaic piece was found in Jordan dating back to the late first century BC
