In the 90s of the 20th century, the tradition of baptism in Qasr el Yehud came to a new life. On January 19, the Greek Orthodox Church celebrates the Feast of the Epiphany, and baptisms are held in Qasr el Ehud. Another important date for prayers and baptisms is on Easter Eve. Pope John Paul II visited the place in 2000. In 2003, the Ministry of National Parks of Israel built a convenient approach to the water and landscaped the area.
