  • I think it's good for Christians. Because this place has a spiritual meaning which is in the Bible. If you're not Christian then it wouldn't good because it's little shade and you can just see vast field. Ah one more thing is.. you can se e an tunnel which is not so long and big but good to avoid from sunshine. I hope there are much more places for rest including shade.
  • Biggest attraction is the water cave. Other than that it is a city of ruins. If you are into archeology it is great but if you are not maybe not so much. Biggest problem is the lack of shade. On hot days its tough
