Madaba in Jordan, is also called the “City of Mosaics.” Located close to Mount Nebo (the burial place of Moses), it is best known for its spectacular Byzantine and Umayyad mosaics.

Madaba is also home to the famous 6th century Mosaic Map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land. Hundreds of mosaics from the 5th through the 7th centuries are scattered throughout Madaba’s churches and homes.

In 2017, leaders and church members who visited Jordan, came together to purchase these beautiful Jordanian table and tableware for the purposes of TPMC’s redevelopment project.
