Timna Park Visit

Written and Photographed by Nahum Eisenstadt

The last site in Timna Park we saw was Solomon’s Pillars, which really have nothing to do with Solomon. In the bottom picture we are seen in front of these Precambrian Sandstone Pillars that are impressively lit at dusk, next we hiked up to see the rock inscription showing a local Canaanite leader who worked his way to be the Pharoh’s most trusted Minister making an offering to Ramsis III. It is located above an impressive mining temple in use for close to 4 millenia continuously discovered by accident. You can see the great motivation of the CAARI active retirees hiking up to the rock inscription.
