ein saharonim



Ein Saharonim- a very old khan (caravanserai)- about 2000 years old from the time of the Nabateans. The khan was one of many stop-overs on the spice route. I did not take many pictures… but I like places like this and Neomi was very interested too- she had to enter every "room" and we imagined who/ what had been there. There are the remains of an old cooking-oven, stairs and even bath-tubs (probably added by the Romans on a later date). There's another, much bigger place- Avdat- more to the north but we did not have time to go and visit- something to do next time.
