The hot freshwater springs that feed the Dead Sea contain high concentrations of minerals and hydrogen sulfide. One such place is Hammamat Ma’in, a beautiful oasis on the edge of the Dead Sea and the Mujib Nature Reserve, where the hot spring waters descend from the rocks above to form natural thermal pools.
Zarqa Ma’in (biblical Belemounta), 58 km south of Amman and 120 meters below sea level, is the thermal mineral hot springs and waterfalls, where Herod the Great was said to have bathed in its medicinal water, and where people have come for thermal treatments, or simply to enjoy a hot soak, since the days of Rome. It is now being restored and rebuilt as a comprehensive spa and natural clinic providing treatment for people with skin diseases, blood circulatory problems and bone, joints, back and muscular pains.
