Historical Sites at the Dead Sea
Martyrius was a monk from the Byzantine era who built a monastery in the Judean Desert, which is now located at the heart of a residential neighborhood in MaaleAdumim.
Lot's Wife monument is actually a mountain formed like a pillar of salt, visible from route 90. Stop on the side of the road (carefully, of course) to tell your children the biblical story of Lot and his family, and to take a picture near the monument as a souvenir.
