No one really cares about this site and it’s too bad since it’s the ruins of the oldest city in the world. The signs are all ruined, the fences are torn down and just looks like a pile of sand. Too bad! Amazing view to...More

It is handy to have a guide explain the history and the landscape of this site. It is amazing that such was possible so many thousands of years ago.

Well presented and preserved site of great interest. Having a guide helped make the site more interesting and easy to visualise. Excellent views of the monastery and surrounding area. Watch out for snakes.

Wonderful ruins bring back Bible stories. It is adjacent to a shopping center with restaurants and the famous spring. Archaeologists say it is the oldest known city in the world. A great place to spend some free time.
