View looking west at the site of Gamala (just to the left of center). Note its camel–back shape. On the right (north) side of the image is the Nahal Gamla. On its left (south) is the Nahal Daliyot.
Gamala is located 3.7 mi. [6 km.] east of the northern end of the Sea of Galilee. The word “Gamala/Gamla” means “camel,” and indeed the site looks somewhat like the back of a camel. The site is large, covering about 45 acres [18.2 ha.]. It rises about 750 ft. [230 m.] above the surrounding wadis (nahals) and its absolute height is 1,082 ft. [330 m.].
