View looking south from el-Araj at the Lagoon formed by the Jordan River as it enters the Sea of Galilee.

El-Araj is located on the north-eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee, about 200 yards inland.  It is located at about -212 meters below sea level, at approximately the level where other harbors from the first century A.D. have been found.  It is a leading candidate for Biblical Bethsaida.
