Rujum el Hiri

Local nameרוג'ום אל הירי
LocationNorth District, Israel

Rujm el-Hiri is an ancient megalithic monument consisting of concentric circles of stone with a tumulus at center. It is located in the Israeli-occupied portion of the Golan Heights, some 16 kilometres east of the coast of the Sea of Galilee, in the middle of a large plateau covered with hundreds of dolmen.

Made up of more than 42,000 basalt rocks arranged in concentric circles, it has a mound 15 feet tall at its center. Some circles are complete, others incomplete. The outermost wall is 520 feet in diameter and 8 feet high. The establishment of the site, and other nearby ancient settlements, is dated by archaeologists to the Early Bronze Age II period.
