Mount Nebo is a hilltop NE of the Dead Sea, believed to be (by Christian tradition), the place where Moses died and was buried (Deut. 34:1-6).
According to the Book of Maccabees (2:4-7), it is also the place where Jeremiah hid the Ark of the Covenant.
Evidence to both were never found at the site (or else where), but since the Byzantine period the site is venerated by Christianity as a holy place.
In 1933 remains of a monastery and a church were uncovered at the summit of the site (Syagha), and in 2016 the site was reopened after a major renovation project.
In front of the church one can get a spectacular panorama of “The promised land”.
