What is the meaning of Qumran?

Qumran is located on a dry plateau about a mile inland from the northwestern shore
of the Dead Sea in the West Bank, just next to the Israeli Kibbutz of Kalia.

The site was most likely constructed sometime during or before the reign of John Hyrcanus, 134-104 BCE and saw various phases of occupation until, probably after the fall of Jerusalem in 70 CE, Titus and his X Fretensis destroyed it.

It is best known as the settlement nearest to the hiding place of the Dead Sea Scrolls in the caves of the sheer desert cliffs. It is located near 31°45'N, 35°26'E.
