Abstract. The Baptism (El-Maghtas) site located north to the Dead Sea at the eastern bank of the Jordan River. There are many excavations in the surrounding area that revealed different archaeological remains which indicates the location John the Baptist. He lived and preached in the early 1st Century A.D. who is famous for John the Baptist baptized Jesus. The archaeological excavations reveal walls, antiquities, ancient water systems includes such conduits, pools, and ancient pottery pipes. The Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) survey was carried out at selective locations along parallel profiles at the study using a Subsurface Interface Radar System (SIRvoyer-20) with either 400 MHz or 900 MHz mono-static shielded antennas manufactured by Geophysical Survey Systems Inc to delineate possible shallow archaeological material at shallow depth. The GPR radar-gram profiles revealed different subsurface anomalies across all sites. At John the Baptist Church site buried wall were detected along with profiles, the GPR survey recognized shallow wall and shallow buried channel at the pool's site. At Elijah's Hill site the GPR data confirmed the extension of an ancient pottery pipe. Basically the clear diffraction hyperbola anomaly related to the ancient pottery pipe could be discriminated from the 2D profiles. The GPR data was displaced using 3D imaging to define the horizontal and vertical extent of the pipe.
