Haluza was the last caravanserai along the Nabatean Incense route.

In the Roman and Byzantine periods it eveloved to a big city, yet following the Muslim conquest the site was eventually abandoned.

The remains of ancient Haluza were systematically looted in the 19th by the Ottomans to build Gaza, and so very little of the ancient city is visible today.
