Sanctuary of Agios Lot

The Sanctuary of Agios Lot is located to the southeast of the Dead Sea overlooking the modern town of Safi in Jordan. It is a Byzantine era (5th - 7th Centuries AD) monastic site that consists of a basilical church erected at the entrance to a natural cave. The spot of construction was thought to have been where Lot sought shelter after Sodom was destroyed.

This site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List on June 18, 2001 in the Cultural category.
