In Bible Dead sea is called Sea of salt, Genesis (14:3). Here is the place where Dead sea Scrolls were found 0 Qumran. If you go further you can see amazing Botanical garden in Kibutz Ein Gedi which is mentioned several times in Bible and also “Like a Cedar I rose up in Lebanon, and like th Cypress in the Hermon Mountains, like a Date (Palm) I rose up in Ein Gedi” (Quote of Ben Syrah, 24:18). The name Ein Gedi is composed of two Hebrew words: ein means spring and gdi means goat-kid. Ein Gedi thus means “Kid spring.” The word ‘ain’ or ‘ein’ (عين) also means spring in Arabic, and the word ‘Gedi’ or ‘Jadi’ also means a goat-kid in Arabic.
