Madaba,JORDAN: In Pictures(4)

Your visit to Madaba is incomplete without your visit to any  mosaics craft factory, where you can see artisans making mosaics items and also buy them.Here the artisans are taught the art of making, repairing and restoring mosaics. 

Tips: Amazing handicrafts abound in and around Madaba – there are handicraft souks on the road to Mt Nebo(we purchased from one such mosaic center), as well as in town mostly centered along Artisan’s Street. Particularly look out for mosaics, hand woven rugs,hand painting on ostrich egg and wall hangings.
Buy your Mosaic souvenir here. Its always better to buy things at their place of origin….WHY??? because you get variety. It’s slightly costly (don’t worry Not Much) but the variety you will get here is difficult to find in any part of Jordan.
