Baptismal Site on Jordan River Nov 16, 2012
Yardenit is located off a main road on the Jordan River. Christ was baptized in the Jordan River, but no one knows where. This outfit selected this site only because the land on both sides of the river is owned by Israel and it is safe to build a complex there. There is a very large gift shop selling religious items to Christians and Jews who stop there. Items are very overpriced. I bought a small bottle of anointing oil for $4 at the hotel gift shop, but here they wanted $12. Some people rent long white robes and get dipped in the river. They are video taped and soft religious music plays in the background of the video. Again, cost is high for this service. If you need a bathroom break, either eat at the costly restaurant or pay for the privilege of using a toilet. Everything here is to make someone rich. I felt that someone was taking advantage of religious people with a hyped up and somewhat phony experience.
