In the new shopping mall, located on a private and amazing beach, there are dozens of stores offering international brands in a variety of fields - clothing, footwear, luxury jewelry, special concept stores and more - as well as cafes and restaurants that provide tourists with additional entertainment places in the hotel area. The mall covers an area of about 15,000 square meters over two floors, and is one of the most beautiful seen in the country. The Dead Sea Mall caters to the Dead Sea area, which is the most visited area in Israel. There is currently no answer for a shopping and entertainment center in this area, and the mall offers an extraordinary tourist experience. The mall is located in the heart of the hotel area in Ein Bokek on the Dead Sea, and is close to the seashore. "The Dead Sea Mall is one of the most original and prestigious commercial projects ever established in Israel. In addition to the extraordinary architecture that corresponds with the environment of the Dead Sea, which has been declared one of the eight wonders of the world, a particularly prestigious mix of stores has been chosen that includes the most well-known and leading chains in the world in order to be able to serve the public in the best possible way."

Masada – world heritage site a tourist destination by the Dead Sea

Masada – world heritage site a tourist destination by the Dead Sea

Masada is the most visited site of all the archaeological sites in Israel and one of its main tourist attractions. It contains ancient palaces and fortifications located on top of an isolated rock plateau in a stunning desert site overlooking the Dead Sea. And it holds a great historical value, too. Masada (meaning 'fortress' in Hebrew) became known for its attributed mythic significance in the First Jewish-Roman War (also known as the Great Jewish Revolt). In the first century A.D. nearly a thousand Jewish rebels who believed in zero-tolerance toward the Roman rule took over the fortress and were surrounded by the Roman army, which left behind the most complete siege works in the world. When defeat appeared imminent, the rebels chose to commit suicide instead of giving in and spending the rest of their lives as slaves. This made Mesada a symbol of the human spirit’s yearning for freedom. The Israel Nature and Parks Protection Authority had expertly restored the ruins of Masada, so visitors can almost re-live the last days of this heroic story's main characters. The latest attraction is the remarkable new museum, with nine dramatically lit rooms displaying some precious finds alongside life-size statues. In the Masada museum, visitors can easily picture the lives and deaths of these Jewish fugitives, who refused to surrender. Beyond the mythic importance of this site, you will find the Dead Sea and desert mountains views absolutely stupendous. The cliffs on the east edge of this Dead Sea site are about 1,300 feet high and the cliffs on the west are about 300 feet high. The fortress can be reached from two directions today - either from the Dead Sea in the east, via the original and steep "snake path", or from the west on a path built from the old Roman ramp, offering an easier climb or a cable car. Masada is a world heritage site and a very popular tourist destination. It is definitely one of your must-see sites while visiting the holy land. Visitors can stay at many of the hotels located at the Dead sea Ein Bokek area, Ein Gedi, and Kalia.

The Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is unlike any other place in the world. It is one of the main attractions for tourists visiting the Israel, and for many good reasons.

Dead Sea scrolls and Qumran

Dead Sea scrolls and Qumran

The Qumran Ruin is a complex of structures located in the Yehuda Desert on the verge of the Dead Sea. It can be found on a barren terrace between the Dead Sea and the cliffs where the long-untouched Qumran Caves reside. The Qumran Ruin is located just next to the northwestern shore of the Dead Sea, some 1300 feet below sea level and several kilometers south of Jericho, and is one of the main tourist attractions in the Dead Sea area. The design of the Qumran ruin is unique, with many large halls that used to serve public functions, and a relatively small number of living quarters. The main structure used to have several rooms arranged around a central courtyard. Additional building complexes, to the south and east of the main building, have contained long halls, rooms and ritual baths. A large number of mikva'ot (ritual baths) were found throughout the site, as was typical of public and private buildings in Jerusalem in the Second Temple period. Beside the spectacular archeological value of these ancient ruins, Qumran is best known as the nearest settlement to the burial place of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Dead Sea scrolls were discovered between 1947 and 1956 in eleven caves around the area, and have been considered to be the greatest manuscript discovery of modern times. The scrolls consist of about 825 to 870 separate documents of great religious and historical importance that include the only known existing copies of Biblical documents created before 100 AD. The Dead Sea Scrolls were most likely written by the Essenes, a strict Torah observant, Messianic, new covenant Jewish sect during the period lasting from about 200 B.C. to 68 A.D. They enhance our knowledge of both Judaism and Christianity, and represent a non-rabbinic form of Judaism alongside a wealth of comparative materials for New Testament scholars. Visiting the Qumran National Park is an exciting and inspiring experience. The most important findings in the area are the ones from the end of the Second Temple period and from the Bar-Kochva rebellion era. It is possible to see the cave in which the Dead Sea Scrolls were found, and other structures that were excavated nearby. An audio-visual presentation tells the story of the site and the people who used to live here. In addition, it is possible to take a short walk up the Qumran canyon, in a nice desert surrounding, and appreciate the one-of-a-kind surrounding of the lowest place on earth.
