Michal Observation-Naharayim

Archaeology and History

Naharayim or Baqoura is a site on the border between Israel and Jordan where the Yarmouk River flows into the Jordan River.

A hydroelectric power-plant had operated at Naharayim from 1932.

The plant, established by Pinhas Rotenberg, produced much of the energy consumed in Mandatory Palestine until the 1948 Palestine war.

The canals and dams built for the power-plant created a man-made island.
