Kursi, east of the Sea of Galilee at the mouth of a riverbed descending from the Golan Heights, is traditionally the place where Jesus exorcised demons from two possessed men (Matthew 8:28-33). Map.
A huge sixth-century monastery and church built there to commemorate the miracle were once major pilgrimage destinations. They lay hidden in ruins until a road construction crew came across the site in the early 1970s. The Israeli government excavated the site and developed it into a national park.
