The mosaic map lays on the floor of the Saint George Greek Orthodox Church. Great work of Art. Unfortunately, there are obstructions. You can go to the Introductory Map Room to see the full view of this map. There is also some more works inside the church as well. If you want to see more of these mosaic, there is a nearby mosaic workshop down the street from Mount Nebo.

Spend time at the introductory map room before entering the church. Not a big area remains but definitely important and memorable to see how this place was viewed in the 6th century.

Head to Saint George Greek Orthodox Church to see the oldest mosaic map of the Holy Land. Over two million tesserae (little tiles) once comprised this 6th century masterpiece referenced by early Christian pilgrims. A little over half of the map has survived the passage of time, negligence and purposeful defacing. But, thanks to a 1965 restoration effort, enough remains to take your breath away. The largest and most detailed element is Jerusalem, at the center. The map has even been used in recent times to authenticate Biblical geographic accounts. All the notations are in Greek. The Church Visitor’s Center has a helpful interpretive map for orientation.
