Here the Jordan River is flowing from the Golan Heights to the Sea of Galilee.
The Jordan River is no more than a stream in many spots as it is here. Water is diverted from the Jordan River by Israel, Syria and Jordan for drinking and irrigation.
The Jordan River is referred to repeatedly in the Hebrew Bible, e.g., "The garden of God" (Genesis). In Christian tradition, Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River by John the Baptist.
