Masada is a very important site for many reasons. It is a stunning sight with amazing architectural achievements by Harod “the great.” Later, it was the last Jewish stronghold after the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem. Today, tourists from all over the world continue to visit the mesmerizing site.
I was amazed at the sheer size of the mountain in which this ancient architecture sits. In order to get to the top, you can choose to walk the “snake path” or take the cable car. Often, the snake path is closed due to weather conditions, meaning it is really hot outside. Either way, I suggest brining plenty of water, wearing sunscreen, and wearing good shoes. I was very bumped that I was not able to walk the snake path.
While I was at the top, I took a moment to myself to appreciate all of the people who came before me and all of those who will come after me. No matter what religion, spirituality, or lack there of you adhere to Masada is a place in which people can connect through time. People have been coming to Masada for hundreds, thousands of years and continue to do so today.
