Jordan has announced plans to develop the site along the Jordan River – where John is believed to have baptized Jesus – into a destination for Christian pilgrims from around the world.
King Abdullah himself attended a ceremony last week to officially appoint the board which was formed last year to provide a strategic vision to develop the site. The plan includes improving the infrastructure to accommodate more pilgrims and establishing a village with hotels and hospitality, an area for religious ceremonies, as well as agricultural parks and gardens.
“The board will oversee the development of these areas, while ensuring the protection of the Baptism Site as a UNESCO World Heritage Site,” according to the Royal Hashemite website. “The advisory board groups areexperts from around the world in development, tourism, cultural heritage and hospitality, among other key fields.”
