In the winter, there is a seasonal lake there in which the waters pool with the help of a dam that has been built to collect flood water. At the site there is a demolished bridge, the remains of the Turkish railway track that was paved during World War One from Lod to the Be’er Sheva railway station, continuing in the direction of Sinai and the Suez Canal, which was under British control. The bridge was destroyed in floods in the 1970s.
The reserve has plants of Mediterranean and desert origin. The reserve was defined in the 1960 and has not been damaged by grazing. At the sites there are limestone rocks from the Eocene epoch.
