Weather of Arabia - Amidst the charming nature that combines the greenery of trees with a waterfall of fresh water, and the cave that descends from its slopes with clear water flowing towards the course of the torrent, you find the eyes of Musa, which are natural springs located in the Madaba Governorate, southwest of the Jordanian capital, Amman.
The name is due to some holy books that the Prophet of God Moses, peace be upon him, hit the rock with his stick and watered his people from its water.
