Tall Zira'a

The Tall Zira'a is one of the most promising talls of Palestine. Surveys and geophysical investigations showed the site’s great potential for excavations. Presumably, an almost continuous stratigraphy from Early Bronze Age to the Islamic periods will demonstrate the history of northeast Jordan.

Located at 32.6208, 35.6561 (Lat. / Lng.), about 2 miles away.

Ashdot Ya'akov

Ashdot Ya'akov is a kibbutz in northern Israel. It was founded in 1924 by a kvutza of Hashomer members from Latvia on the land which is today Gesher. It was named after the rapids of the nearby Yarmouk River and James "Ya'akov" Armand de Rothschild. Between 1933 and 1935 the kibbutz moved north-east of its original location, onto land which had been bought by the Palestine Jewish Colonization Association.

Located at 32.6581, 35.5819 (Lat. / Lng.), about 3 miles away.

Naharayim is a site on the border between Israel and Jordan where an hydroelectric power-plant was established in 1930. The Yarmuk River flows into the Jordan River at Naharayim. The plant, established by Pinchas Rutenberg, produced much of the energy consumed in the British Mandate of Palestine until Israel's War of Independence in 1948.

Located at 32.6444, 35.5728 (Lat. / Lng.), about 3 miles away.
