I haven’t been so excited about a new attraction in many, many years.
Today I visited The Moses Cave in Bludan, Syria and I will go back and back and back. It was really fascinating! This cave was manmade as the used the sand excavated for the many building built in Bludan many years ago. The cave has just reopened on the first of September, 2017.
While in Bludan you can travel on the Bludan Tram or drive your car to the Moses Cave. If you drive it’s not too hard to find as there are ample signboards along the way.
You enter a large parking area which has a few restaurants and ample parking for ones car. You walk down a steep walkway down to the Caves entrance. There is a small fee charged, and I suggest you first read a large information board explaining the history of the cave just in front of the ticket office.
When you enter you first notice the change in temperature, it was at least 5 degrees lower than the outside temperature! The cave offers a mixture of a nice self guided walking tour as you pass tables with people enjoying a cup of coffee or tea then various gift shops and finally a nice boat ride that offers one a diverse view of the large cave. The footpath is easy to follow and fairly safe. You find there are many levels within the cave and I suggest you take each route as you will see the cave in its’ entirety!
Along the walkway you pass countless sculptures that were carved out of the sandstone many years ago. Each figurine has great detail and is either an animal or famous character.
Only a couple of the Gift Shops are open at this time, but there is one vary large shop that has a very nice selection of original and novel gifts!
The cave offers an outdoor Terraced restaurant that has a very nice view of the full valley below. They do have restrooms the men’s room was OK, but the ladies room, I was told, was very unclean!
If you have never seen the Moses Cave I strongly suggest you make an effort to visit it…I know you will enjoy it.

The Moses Cave is located in the resort city called Bloudan some 40 km. from Damascus. I last saw this amazing site some two years ago and today I brought my son and his two boy’s to enjoy this small yet great site.
When we entered we found that the ambient temperature was 22 C year-round and the water level was at an all-time high. Since the water level was high we decided to take the small boat tour. It was a challenge getting in and out of this small fiberglass boat, but yet it was very enjoyable and not too expensive. The price per person was only 500 £ or about .85 cents! During the short boat ride we were forced to really duck our heads as the water level was very, very high. My two grandsons really enjoyed this short yet enjoyable ride.
The walk around the man-made cave was very nice as they kept discovering carvings within the rock walls. They have added what appeared to be an old skeleton of a ‘dinosaur’ or large animal.
The entire tour of the Moses Cave took about an hour including the boat ride.
If you want to really want to enjoy yourself while in Bloudan I strongly suggest you find the Moses Cave and do a tour. You will not be disappointed, trust me.

Located in Bloudan to the west of Damascus city, it's a manmade grotto with several nice sculptures on the walls, a small lake, serval gift shops and a cafeteria...
