Avdat

Presenting Avdat to “The Watchman”

Avdat was an important road station of the Nabatean caravans along the incense route between Petra and Gaza.

In Roman and Byzantine times the site developed to a walled city with a citadel in which two churches were erected.

The site was abandoned following the Muslim conquest of the Holy Land, and was never settled again. Excavated mostly in the 1960’s, Avdat is now recognised as a World heritage site by UNESCO.
