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.

The story of Sodom, Gommorah, Lot, and his family, is common to the holy books of the Jewish , Christian, and Islamic faiths.
