Welcome to Yardenit!
Yardenit is situated on the banks of the Jordan River, at the Southern tip of the Sea of Galilee. Each year it welcomes over half a million tourists and pilgrims, who come to experience the tranquility and spiritual beauty of the waters in which Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.
Entry to the site is free. The river banks themselves retain their pastoral landscapes, with rich greenery and wildlife. Otters and fish swim freely in the river. The site has handrails and wheelchair-accessible ramps leading into the river. The waters are constantly monitored for quality and safety.
