Matryrius Monastery

Located today in the heart of “Ma’ale Adumim” town, “Martyrius Monastery” was once one the biggest monastic complexes in the Judean Desert.

The monastery is located along the road to the Baptism site (qasr el-Yahud) , near Jericho , and so it also accomdated many Christian pilgrim groups, as echoed also in its archaeological record.
