Ad Halom Bridge

The bridge, which was built by the Turks in the late 19th Century on the foundations of the original Roman bridge, is the northernmost point in the country that Egyptian army forces managed to reach during the War of Independence, hence the name “Ad Halom” (to this point), which is also the name of the highway interchange located south of the bridge. At the end of the war the historic bridge was restored and the Ad Halom park was built next to it, which contains a memorial site commemorating the fallen from the Givati Brigade and a monument in memory of the fallen Egyptian soldiers. Bordering the park is the beautiful Nahal Lachish Reserve.
