Ein Gedi is Israel\'s largest oasis off the western shore of the Dead Sea. Inhabited as early as the Chalcolithic period in the fourth millennium BCE, En-gedi is mentioned in the biblical narrative of the pursuit of David by King Saul. Beginning in the 7th century BCE, Ein Gedi was almost continuously settled for some 1,400 years.
