Dead Sea



Dead Sea

That same salt, on the other hand, provides tremendous relief to the many ailing visitors who come here on a regular basis to benefit from its healing properties.

All these and more make the Dead Sea so fascinating, so different and so interesting. The Dead Sea region features historical sites of global importance, attracting thousands of lovers of history and archeology every year.

The Baptism Site – the baptism site near where the Jordan River flows into the Dead Sea is identified with the place where Jesus Christ was baptized by John the Baptist, and is considered one of the most sacred places in the Christian world. Near the baptism site is the Monastery of John the Baptist, known as "Kasser al Yahud" (the Palace of the Jews).

During most days, however, the water shimmers under a beating sun. Where rocks meet its lapping edges, they become snow-like, covered with a thick, gleaming white deposit that gives the area a strange and surreal sense. Each year, baptism ceremonies, epiphanies, take place at the site, attracting thousands of Christian pilgrims from around the world.

Qumran – the place where the Dead Sea Scrolls, the oldest documentation of the Bible, were discovered.

Masada – a historical site that symbolizes determination, courage and heroism. Any living creature or plant (even seaweed) that dares enter these saline-charged waters dies pretty much instantly.

They are well known for relieving pains and sufferings caused by arthritis, rheumatism, psoriasis, eczema, headache and foot-ache, while nourishing and softening the skin.

Although the Dead Sea would never entirely disappear (because evaporation slows down as surface area decreases and saltiness increases), measures are currently being proposed to siphon water from the Red Sea through a series of tunnels or canals in order to replenish the rapidly shrinking waters and provide water and electrical solutions to the surrounding countries.
