Qumran National Park, Jerusalem, Israel

A visit to Qumran National Park may well leave its mark on you as one of life’s most memorable spiritual experiences. The Qumran National Park consists of multiple caves with varying exhibits of focus and content.

The site, set in the stark desert mountains just south of the Dead Sea, stands out as one of the most significant in both religious and general Middle-Eastern history. So to use your time wisely, it is highly recommended that you purchase a local map from the Visitor’s Center.

There hence emerges a twofold mission that a tourist seeking to fully explore the Qumran site really should take on. The first is, of course, to view the Dead Sea Scrolls. Doubters will be hard-pressed to find a rebuttal to the physical evidence of Jesus’ speeches in the Holy Land.

Believers consider this a pilgrimage, to view the best-restored Biblical prose in history. The second is to view the other documents, which compile information about the Essenes’ daily lives, and the artifacts that offer up for inspection the minute details of their existence.

The historians among you will view with great interest the documentation of their deeply religious existence, including their unwavering observation of the Sabbath, communitarian duties and strictly observed prayer routines.

Artifacts including ancient agricultural tools, pottery, aqueducts and cisterns add flavor and credence to these texts. The excellent audio-visual presentations should not be missed. The history of this region is often complex and confusing, but is admirably fleshed out in an entertaining, accurate and concise manner.
