rGader Gators': Israeli Park
Is Site of Amphibious Invasion

By RALPH VAN KIPPEN
Isr'ael Ministry of Tourism

JERUSALEM — Ham-
mat Gader is quite remark-
able: it nestles on the shore
of the River Yarmuk in a
deep valley — not far from
the legendary Sea of
Galilee. It has natural hot
mineral springs, whose
water gurgles to the surface
at an amazing 125 degrees
Fahrenheit. And it was here
that the Romans built a
vast, elaborate network of
bath houses.
The baths of Hammat
Gader have been known for
millenia. The First Century
BCE Greek traveler, Es-
trabo, wrote about them; so
did geographer El Mukadas
in the 10th Century and the
13th Century Jewish
traveller Ashtori Haparchi.
The baths built at Ham-
mat Gader were, according
to the Fourth Century
Greek historian Eunapeus,

"the second largest in the
Roman Empire." They were
in constant use during the
Second and Third Cen-
turies, were extensively re-
stored in the Seventh Cen-
tury and fell into disuse in
the Ninth Century, after
which centuries of earth,
debris and neglect took over
only to be removed in a
series of excavations start-
ing in 1979.

Like Roman baths all
over the world, the
Hammat Gader bath
complex incorporated

Tepidarium — the
lukewarm water pool;
and the Caldarium — the
hot water pool: were all
constructed so as best to
utilize the hot water of
the natural springs.
The genius of Roman
engineering is evident
everywhere. Extensive use
was made of lead pipes for
water supply and drdinage;
there were intricate heating
and cooling systems, and a
whole array of sophisticated
accessories were used by the
Roman designers in their
attempt to create optimum
bathing conditions.
But Hammat Gader is
much more than archeol-
ogy. It is a tourist park with
acres of lush gardens, picnic,
grounds, natural swimming
pools fed by warm mineral
water, waterfalls and a res-
taurant. More than 1,000
people a day visit the site,
and, of course, they also
come to see the alligators.
In 1980, more than 100
alligators were flown from
Florida to Israel and they
are here in enclosures, pools
and lakes where they are
separated by age group, and
their progress and growth
examined by scientists.
