Chorazin

Choarin is an ancient village 3 km north of Capernaum , on a hill above the Sea of Galilee. In the Christian world Chorazin is mostly famous for being cursed by Jesus, together with Bethsaidah and Capernaum (Mat. 11:20-24).

Archaeological work at the site recovered mostly a Byzantins era village, but it is assumed that beneath it is the 1st century site mentioned in the Jesus’ curse.

It’s most impressive remain is a Basilica shaped Synagogue, all built of local black Basalt stone.
