The remains of an ancient settlement on the banks of the Dead Sea many believe to have been inhabited by a cult of the Essenes. Ancient scrolls including biblical texts, the Apocrypha and the group's texts, were found secreted in nearby caves. A museum recreates the settlement, and features a 3-D audiovisual show. There is a restaurant on site.
