IRAQ AL-AMIR (عراق الأمير)

After that, we drove through an even worse road around Iraq Al Amir towards the Baptism Site of Jesus Christ. Iraq Al-Amir translates to “Caves of the Prince” because of the series of 15 caves carved into the cliff above the village. Some of the caves were open, and some were closed. We explored this cave system (accessible by a stone staircase from the paved road) that dates back to the Copper Age and then drove slowly to our next destination.
