Qarantal monastery in the Desert

The Monastery of the Temptation (Greek: Μοναστήρι του Πειρασμού, Arabic: دير القرنطل‎ Deir al-Quruntul) is an Orthodox Christian monastery located along a cliff overlooking the city of Jericho and the Jordan Valley. It is built upon the summit of the Mount of Temptation, rising 350 meters above sea level. It currently serves as a tourist attraction, but the monastery is owned and managed by the Greek Orthodox Church of Jerusalem.
