The story of Sodom, Gommorah, Lot, and his family, is common to the holy books of the Jewish , Christian, and Islamic faiths.
It wasn't on the map yet as a tourist destination, but I found Lot's cave near the southern end of the Dead Sea. The biblical story tells of Lot and his family escaping from the un-righteous cities of Sodom and Gommorah. Lot's wife looked back, and turned to a pillar of salt. The cave that the family took refuge in became a shrine. Most of an ancient monastery built in front of the cave has crumbled down the hill due to earthquakes.
