Qumran National Park (Qumran, Israel)

Qumran is operated as a national park by the State of Israel. It is an archaeological site on the fringes of the Judean desert above the Dead Sea, in territory that is also claimed by the Palestinian Authority. Qumran is best known as the site of an ancient Jewish community of religious zealots called Essenes, who produced the collection of religious writings now known as the Dead Sea Scrolls. Qumran has been linked by scholars to traditions that were important to the ministry and religious teachings of Jesus as well as to the historical roots of Talmudic Judaism. The Essenes flourished at this remote location during the two centuries before the destruction of Jerusalem by Roman legions and the suppression of the Jewish revolt against the Roman Empire (66-73 CE). The park is open the year round and is less than an hour’s drive from modern Jerusalem. Its facilities include a visitor center, gift shop, and restaurant. An audiovisual presentation helps visitors to place the site into its historical context. The settlement site is accessible to wheelchairs and provides Braille signs for visually impaired visitors.
