The Shrine of the Book is the home
of the exceptional archaeological finds: the Dead Sea Scrolls and
other rare ancient manuscripts. The dome covers a structure which
is two-thirds below the ground, and is reflected in a pool of water
that surrounds it.
The striking juxtaposition of the white dome and black basalt wall,
precise and opposing geometrical shapes, creates a monumental effect
and contributes an extraordinary phenomenon in the Israeli landscape.
