Timna Park

In the south of Israel lies the Timna Park. This is an archeological site and home to unusual natural phenomena. Since 2002, the area has been declared a national park. The oldest copper mine in the world believed to date back to the 10th century BC is carved in the sandstone here. As for natural phenomena, there are products of erosion of beautiful shapes: the Pillars of King Solomon, the Rock Mushroom, and the Arches. Archaeologists have found, in addition to the mine, drawings of Egyptian Chariots on the rocks, as well as the Shrine of Hathor. The Tent of the Congregation, or life-size Tabernacle replica of the Old Testament, was built here. According to tradition, Moses made this tent so that the people of Israel would have a temple on their way to the Holy Land.
