Nain (2)


Nein, the present representative of this place, so interesting in New-Test. history, is thus described in the Memoirs to the Ordnance Survey (2:86):

"This little village stands on a small plateau at the foot of Jehel ed- Duhy, in a position elevated above the plain. It is of stone and mud, with a little mosque called Mukam Sidna Aisa on the north. There are numerous traces of' ruins, extending beyond the boundary of the modern hamlet to the north, showing the place to have been once larger; but these ruins have a modern appearance. There is a small spring north of the village; a second, Ain el-Baz, exists on the west, and beside it are rock-cut tombs, much. defaced, and a tree." (See illustration on following page.)
