Qasr al-Yahud (the Castle of the Jews), located to the north of the Dead Sea, is a captivating ancient historical site. According to Jewish tradition Qasr al-Yahud is the place where the people of Israel crossed the Jordan River to enter the land of Canaan. It is also the third holiest place in Christian tradition, as according to the New Testament it was here, in Qasr al-Yahud, that John the Baptist baptized Jesus; where the Spirit of God descended as a dove and where the spiritual birth of Jesus occurred.
