A great place to spend an hour with a book describing history of this very old place. However, without knowing its history, it looks similar to many such places in Israel. Thus, highly recommend if you have a visiting book in your hand.

The largest well preserved desert city from ancient times. Well worth going to. The best place to see a 'horned altar'. No shetler from the sun so take a hat.
