"THE STORY OF THE LIBERATED LAND"
in 1994, the Jordanian and Israeli sides agreed in the Wadi Araba treaty to restore Jordan to the area, which has an estimated area of 850 dunums. Note that Jordan did not exercise effective sovereignty over the recovered area, which was subject to a special regime whereby Israelis are entitled to ownership and visit and to enter their police with its weapons. His Majesty King Abdullah II decided to terminate the annexes of Al-Bakura and Al-Ghamr lands from the peace agreement with the Zionist entity, considering this decision as one of the most important sovereign decisions taken by His Majesty and that it comes as a victory for the interests of the Jordanian state. Bakura represents the meeting point of the Yarmouk River with the Jordan River, making it one of the most fertile agricultural areas in the region. Economists said that this decision has positive repercussions at the Jordanian internal level, and that it will open areas and opportunities to reassess the system of decisions that were previously taken at various levels and commensurate with the interests of the Jordanian state in various circumstances.
However the idea was to create an interpretation center representing the importance and a value of a land, serving the experience and marking history for next generation by telling a story of a land by a timeline presenting each period, the path is a timeline, the volumes are the Bakura and each volume is a stage , as stepping forward you going through history till you reach the day we are on today.
