"For the Lord your God is bringing you to a good land, a land of streams of water, Einat and Temat, going out in the valley and the mountains".
Ein Laban is a stratum spring typical of the Judean Mountains that flows from a carved tunnel. The rainwater is absorbed by the hard limestone rock and emerges on the back of the soft and opaque layer of marl. The water flows in open channels into two pools that store the water to irrigate the agricultural terraces built downhill as the orchard.
Wildflowers bloom on the stairs and in the rock's cracks, including daffodils, anemones, and hollyhocks. Scattered around are the remains of buildings, cisterns, and burial caves from the Mishna and Talmudic periods to the time of the early Arab invasion. There are also remains that testify to an ancient Jewish settlement in this place during the First Temple period.
