John Baharim Church

john baharim church“John Baharim” (Hebrew “John in the mountains”) is a Catholic church in Ein Karem   built over remains of buildings from earlier periods, and by local tradition is at the site where John the Baptist was born (Luke 1:39).

In the forecourt of the church one can see a Byzantine period mosaic floor, a late Roman period sculpture, and a first century Jewish ritaul bath (“Miqveh”).
