Most visitors to Qumran are familiar with Qumran Cave 4—since it is conveniently located near the antiquity site of Qumran.
However, Cave 1, where the first 7 (almost) complete scrolls were found in 1947, is rarely visited.
A bit to the north of Cave 1, along the same line of cliffs, is the more accessible Cave 11.
Here, in 1956, 21 additional texts were discovered, including the longest of the Dead Sea Scrolls—The Temple Scroll (26.7 ft. [8.2 m.] long). This is the last cave in the area of Qumran where scrolls were discovered.
