Tel Dan Nature Reserve visit


Tel Dan , also known as Tel el-Qadi (Mound of the Judge in Arabic, literal translation of the Hebrew name Tel Dan, “Dan” being “judge”, or “judging one”), is an archaeological site in Israel in the upper Galilee next to the Golan Heights. The site is quite securely identified with the Biblical city of Dan, the northernmost city in the Kingdom of Israel, which the Book of Judges states was known as Laish prior to its conquest by the Tribe of Dan. Due to its location close to the border with Lebanon and at the far north of the territory which fell under the British Mandate of Palestine, Tel Dan has had a long and often bitterly contested modern history, most recently during the 1967 Six-Day War.
