The “Good Samaritan inn” is an archaeological site next to the Jerusalem-Jericho road, identified as the site mentioned in the ‘Good Samaritan” parable (Luke 10:25-37).
The site was inhabited in the first century, and used again in the Byzantine and Crusaders periods.
In 2009 the site was opened to the public after being developed to an archaeologial park displaying both the antiquities discovered at the site, as well as a rare and unique collection of ancient Jewish, Christian and Samaritan mosaic floors.
Khan al-Hatruri ( Arabic: خان الحترورة), also known as the Good Samaritan Inn (and also known as Khan al-Ahmar ), is a caravanserai located at the road between Jerusalem and Jericho, 298 meters above sea level. According to the Christian tradition, the site may have been the location of the event of the ” Parable of the Good Samaritan” in the Gospel of Luke.
