The Archeological Garden in Kibbutz Ramat Rachel offers a true enriching experience through the history of the land of Israel. The fertile ground, on which the garden is situated nowadays, tells the story of 3000 years of life and culture by various populations. This archeological site contains evidence and remains staring from the First Temple period and up until the Byzantine period in Israel. Walk through the remains of a Byzantine church, a Roman military camp, and ancient Mikvahs dated back to the Second Temple Period.
This site was reopened for visitation in 2002 after a reservation project by the artist Ran Morin, and it is open during all hours of the day and all days of the week. The archeological garden is a great place for an enriching family activity and the entrance is completely free of charge.
