Tell Husban image
Tell Hisban, ancient Heshbon, is one of the most important archaeological site, which is located on the western road to Madaba.
 The most important archaeological discoveries at the site were represented by a trench, which is carved in the rock. It is about 17 meters in length and 4 meters in depth. The trench is dated back to the Iron Age I (1200) BC. In addition, a seven-meter-deep water-collecting installation, dating back to the Iron Age II was discovered.
To the Roman period, a temple was discovered, which is surrounded by a wall and has two gates, one on the south side and attached to a staircase, and the second on the north side. This temple was built on the ruins of a Hellenistic castle.
During the Byzantine period, a church was built on the northern slope of the hill and decorated with mosaic floors.
In the Mamluk era (1400 - 1260 AD), Hisban has an important role, and became an administrative center and the seat of the administrative ruler. Among the most important remains dating back to this period is a bathroom consisting of rooms and a bathtub carved in stone.
