Horvat Gmama

Across the road from Kibbutz Ruhama, there’s a hidden gem: a stunning grove featuring mats of anemones (in season).

After the rain, it is recommended to arrive with 4×4 vehicles only.

Ruins of the Arab village of Gmama – Remains of mud houses in this Arab village, established in the 19th century by the Kharatis (tenant farmers) who worked the land in the territory of the Bedouin Al Atauna tribe, and who abandoned the village in 1948.

The village’s name is from the Arab word Gmam, meaning plenty of water, probably because of the abundant water wells in the vicinity.

The village was built on the ruins of an ancient Byzantine settlement.

There are also remnants of a Byzantine monastery nearby.
