Lot’s Wife is a stunning statue in the southern part of the dead sea
One of the well-known stories in the book of Genesis is the story of Lot's wife. She was the one who dared to look back when God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even though the angles forbade her. As a punishment, she turned into a salt statue. There are many different interpretations of this story and disagreements about where is the figure in the Sodom area. In Israel, it was decided that the statue is above the Sodom Cave. Like many caves in the area, the cave is closed to visitors due to the fear of collapse. This is a stunning stopping point in the south of the Dead Sea.
There you can see the beauty of the desert, the spectacular giant rocks against the dead sea, salt on the low rocks (taste it!), and of course the statue itself - mesmerizing.
