The Dead Sea Mall

The Dead Sea Mall

Deadsea travel guide

The “Dead Sea Mall” opened for the first time in the Dead Sea, one of the ten wonders of the world. The mall is a tourist attraction and provides an answer to a decades-old shortage.

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.”

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.

Let's explore why a visit to the Dead Sea is both a joyous experience and a wonderful opportunity for health and wellness.

The minerals in the water also help to exfoliate dead skin cells which can improve skin tone and texture. A Place For Fun Not only is the Dead Sea an oasis for health benefits but it can also be lots of fun! Floating in the shallow waters of this unique lake can be an incredibly unique experience unlike any other body of water in the world. You will find yourself effortlessly floating on top due to its high salt content! This allows people who may not normally swim or float easily in other bodies of water to do so here with ease. In addition to floating there are plenty of activities available around the sea like visiting nearby sites such as Masada National Park or Ein Gedi nature reserve or take part in adventure sports like rafting or ziplining over the lake. Safety Precautions It’s important however when visiting this amazing place that visitors take all necessary safety precautions such as avoiding swimming alone or too far out into deeper waters where currents can be stronger than expected.
