The Holy Sites of Jordan (مقامات الأردن)

The Holy Sites of Jordan is a book that documents both Islamic and Christian Holy Sites. The book was produced as part of Turath Al–Urdunn Al-Baqi Committee (TURAB). It is designed to be a practical ‘field-guide’ to all these sites. Indeed, there are over forty Muslim Tombs pertaining to the Companions of the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h.) and the prophets before him and over a hundred Christian Sites in Jordan mentioned in the Bible by name. It is also to encourage ‘religious tourism’ in Jordan. The first edition was published in 1996, the second was published in 1999 and the third edition was published in 2013.
