“Khirbet Qumran” is a unique site near the north western shores of the Dead Sea which bears several odd features such as a large number of Jewish ritual baths (“Miqveh”), and a very big cemetery next to it (c. 800 tombs).

But the site is most famous (and important) for the eleven caves around it in which thousands of scroll fragments were recovered in the 1950’s.  

These “Dead Sea Scrolls” shed important light on ancient Judaism as well as on the cradle of Christianity.

Though the site itself is not impressive, it is highly important for Jewish and Christian studies.
