The Site
The church is on Jebel el-Webdeh at the junction of Nimer ibn 'Adwan Street and Mallah Street. It lies on a ridge of a steep slope overlooking two valleys, Wadi Saqra and Misdar el-Madhneh (Valley of the Minaret), west of Jebel el-Qal'a. The immediate area rises in two rounded platforms from the hill, the uppermost one penetrated by at least four caves and a large water cistern. Three of the caves have the remains of mosaic floors. The church itself lies on the flat platform of the lower terrace and in front of the largest cave.
