Shalom! Tel Dan

Israel

Shalom! Continuing our journey in Israel, if you missed my earlier posts, check out Shalom! Israel

After visiting Herman Stream, our next stop is to Tel Dan Nature Reserve.  Of the three sources of the Jordan River, the Dan River is the largest and most important.  Its springs provide up to 238 million cubic metres of water annually, equivalent to the water flowing from the Hermon and Snir rivers combined.

Ancient Dan

Built during the Israelite period (First Temple), most of the wall was constructed from unhewn basalt stones, with hewn travertine blocks placed on top.
