Um el-Kunatar – an ancient village on the Golan Heights
Um el-Kunatar was a Jewish village from the Talmudic Period at the south of the Golan Heights.
The name derives from the Arabic word for arches = Kunatar and there are 3 beautiful arches that decorate the water spring of the village.
A small village of a couple of hundred people existed here from the 4-7th Century AD.
The basalt stone synagogue is now being restored with the same original decorated stones almost to its full height.
You can visit here every day but viewing the synagogue is only possible on Fridays and Saturdays.
And, of course, what could be more beautiful than watching the sun go down over the Galilee Mountains and Mt Tabor.
The 4 pictures show the arches by the springs, the conservation of the synagogue and the beautiful sunset.
