An interesting attraction in a beautiful desert park
Nov 2019
Along with Solomon's Pillars, King Solomon's Mines are located in the beautiful Timna Park, located in the Negev Desert, about 25 km away from Eilat. The mines themselves are just some unimpressive holes in the ground, from which Copper used to be extracted, back in the time of King Solomon. The Pillars are amazing rock formations that over millennia were eroded by wind and water to nowadays resemble some huge pillars. The Pillars, the Mines, other rock formations and the beautiful images of the desert, make a stop here worthwhile.

God must live here!!!!!!
Mar 2018 • Family
Immediately upon entering this area one is blown away by the vast variations in stone formations and the colours!!!!!!! The Solomon pillars are overwhelming in their sheer size and depth, but that was only part of the beauty of this magnificent area. There used to be copper mines here, so naturally the colours of the rocks varied dramatically, from white chalky colours to yellows and blues and greens and so many shades of red that changed when the sun moved. I was almost moved to tears at the beauty and incredible size of the area.

Mind blowing experience

As you walk through the park and experience moments from the past, it becomes quite humbling. The walking tour, within the park, brings portions of history alive in ways that will leave you changed forever.

A great day out...hired a car....purchased a CD in English that explained all the sites. Well set out....7 or 8 stop off points . Each with about 500m to walk. Take water and hats can get hot. Brilliant days outing. We were there last 2015 April. It was my 2nd time.

For desert lovers
Jul 2017 • Solo
Unfortunately one needs a car/organized tour to visit here. This park has natural rocks and antiquities from the ancient Egyptian times, so it appeals to both history and nature lovers.
There are informative signs so one doesn't need a guide and you can easily visit ot on your own. The road is circular so you can't get lost.
One word of caution, there is no shade and the area is very hot. In the summer month, come early in the morning or late in the after noon bring water and a hat.

Great Place to Hike

This is a part of Timna park. They have a wonderful new tourist center with a new film giving a little history and information about the mines. It was a lot of fun.
