An ancient story from the three holy books takes the form of a collection of natural hot springs called Moses Springs, or Ain Musa in Arabic, that attract people from all over the world to explore every aspect of its divine power inside the holy land of Sinai, home of miracles and prophets.
History Spring of Moses
Moses Springs is where the prophet Moses is said to have thrown a unique tree into the brackish water on God’s command, making the spring’s water drinkable. According to the story of the springs, Moses met Zipporah, his future wife, after saving her and her sisters from a gang of shepherds.
These springs are the monastery’s primary source of water, and the monks claim that they never dry up. The spring is still brackish today, and there is no tree anywhere, but seven of the original 12 springs remained during the nineteenth century, and the springs became known as the largest of the Sinai Oases, which became a popular retreat spot for foreign diplomats.

The Fountain of Moses is located in Sinai, just 15 miles south of the Ahmed Hamdi Tunnel, which connects Sinai to Egypt’s mainland, 250 kilometers from Cairo and one kilometer along the Gulf of Suez.
