The main reason to come here is to see somewhat born again Christians get baptized in the Jordan River. Decked out in white robes and singing and shouting that they do. There are balconies for the tourists to watch. You can rent the robes and...More

I am glad I had the opportunity to see this baptism site but very crowded. We did not have a pastor in our group to do baptisms so we missed out on that experience. I was told that this was not the actual baptism site...More

I expected this place to be more like a factory, but I was very wrong. Besides the Souvenir shop and everything, people are being extremely nice to each other. Complete strangers came to help us baptize my son and sang for him after the ceremony....More

Moving experience. Traveled with Globus and the chance to either simply dip one's feet or be fully immersed in the famous river is an unbelievable experience. A definite must do!

This is an amazing place. A little off the beaten path but truly serene and amazing. Our church baptized 50+ people and it was wonderful. There are places to grab a snack, gifts, etc.

My group of friends and I went to Yardenit to be baptized on the Jordan River. There were several people who went there to be baptized (hundreds). Yardenit seemed alittle commercialized but once you get past that, they do have a good facility to process...More

Hey fitam, We do not have lockers in the showers. Our guests take their bags with them to the River which is only 25 meters away.
