Welcome to the Temptation Tourist Center of Jericho.

Surrounded by history, the Center sits at the doorstep of the biblical city of Jericho. It was here that the seven priests blew their trumpets and “the walls came tumbling down.” The Elijah Spring, where the prophet Elijah miraculously sweetened the bad water, runs across from the Temptation Center. Also within close proximity are the historical sycamore tree Zechariah climbed to catch a glimpse of Jesus; King Herod’s winter palace; and the Mount of Temptation, where Jesus fasted for 40 days and 40 nights.

The Temptation Tourist Center of Jericho originated in 1979 as a small café called the Mount of Temptation Restaurant. Founded by Abu Raed and his wife, Maha, the café was a place where Jericho tourists could receive a warm welcome and be served quality homemade food.
