Tawaheen el Sukkar
Halfway between Tel al Sultan and the Mount of Temptation are the sugar mills known as Tawaheen el Sukkar. Sugar cane production and processing was known in Palestine since the Umayyad period. The Crusaders expanded sugar production for export to Europe. For that purpose they built sophisticated sugar mills, including the ones located in Jericho.
The remains of the aqueduct, which brought water from the Ain Dyuk spring, are still visible today. The water provided the necessary energy for the mill and its pottery workshop. The remains of the press and the factory can also be seen. The site, even though extremely interesting, is not protected and is rarely visited.
