Plain (Kikkar) of the Jordan



The southern end of the Jordan Valley widens out into an almost circular area. This area is called in Gen.13 the Plain (Hebr: Kikkar – circle or disk) of Jordan. The kikkar ends where the Jordan flows into the Dead Sea. The Cities of the Kikkar, Sodom, Gomorrha, Admah and Zeboim were located in the eastern part of the Kikkar, as that is the area that can be seen from Bethel/Ai.
