Another fascinating place to visit is the place called, “Qumran”. Tourists may hardly get to this place but it is definitely rewarding to get the opportunity to visit this place. During the early times, this place has been the home of the Jewish sect. Today, it is a dry plateau about a mile inland from the northwestern shore of the Dead Sea. You might be curious about the place. Make haste and visit Qumram!

Qumram is the closest settlement to the caves where the Dead Sea scrolls were found. To learn further about how the Dead Sea scrolls got into the caves, it is necessary for the archeologists and scientist to visit the closest civilization to the Dead Sea caves. The Qumram settlement was close to the Israeli settlement and Kibbutz of Kalia which makes this place relevant to the history of Israel. You may find some Hostel Jericho around the place where you can settle for the night before you set foot on your next exploration. Hostel Jericho is the perfect place that you can find in the heart of Qumram.

The Qumram was built during the Hellenistic period by the time John Hyrcanus was ruling the entire place. It is occupied and destroyed by the Romans in 68 CE. War came to this place and scientists find it logical that people may run into caves to get protection away from the captors. Hence, there are evidences of people who settled that are found in those caves and of course, the Dead Sea scrolls.

Hostel Jericho: Qumram

The discovery of Qumram is quite mysterious. The place doesn’t have much of the population but it does have a very complex defensive landscape. Scientists and archeologists believe that Qumram is an ancient and small fortress. There are other findings as well that scientists and archeologists noted. Qumran was also a burial ground as thousands of tombs were found in the deepest parts of the fortress.

The site of Khibet Qumram had been known to the European explorers since the 19th century. Some British scholars visited Qumram and had concluded that it was a fortress after overlooking the Ein Feshkha Springs. There are lots of discoveries that were found in Qumram even some of their arts and crafts. They’ve discovered Qumram pottery and some ancient high quality coins after years of excavating the area. Today, there are still evidences of the ancient pottery that we can see today. You can sometimes find these arts in some Hostel Jericho that can be found just a couple of minutes travel from Qumram.
