Tamar is located on a main junction at the northern border of the Arabah Valley, approximately 30 miles southwest of the Dead Sea. In addition to several strata of ruins, a prominent feature of the site is the spring of Ein Hazeva (the strong spring) at the base of a huge jujube tree (ziziphus spina-christi) adjacent to the gate complex of the 9th/8th century BC fortress. Ancient and modern highways meet at this junction: the Aqrabbim trail, the Zin river route, the Arabah road, the Nahal Amaztiah trail, and the road to Ein Yahav and Petra. Well established trade and travel routes across the Arabah and northern Negev Highlands converged at Tamar. >>> Leia mais, clique aqui.
