Sugar Mills

Address:
Jericho
Description:

The Sugar Mills - Recent historical and archeological records show that the sugar industry was one of the main economic activities in the Jordan Valley as far back as the medieval period. Located in the lower foothills of Mount Quruntal (Temptation) in the Jordan Valley, is the Tawaheen Es-Sukkar site which features a relatively well preserved industrial installation for manufacturing sugar.

The site is composed of three components: the water system, the refinery, and the agricultural land. The remains of the industrial installations of sugar production consist of a water aqueduct, a courtyard, press, mill house, refinery, furnace, kitchen, and a storage house.
