Horvat Midras is located in the area of the Adullam Caves Park, which contains the remains of an ancient agricultural settlement.
The name Madras preserves its Arab name Khirbat Drosiya, which is very similar to the ancient settlement of Drossias as it appears on the list of sites of Judah that Ptolemy conducted in the 2nd century. Archaeological excavations on the hilltop reveal fascinating remains of antiquities that prove that there was a Jewish community from the Hasmonean Revolt until the Bar Kokhba Revolt, a large Jewish settlement spread over an area of about 65 acres. The settlement faded after the suppression of the Bar Kokhba Revolt. During the Byzantine period, the site was turned into a Christian village. It is possible to join the trail at Horvat Midras leading to four main sites: a system of hiding tunnels from the Bar Kokhba Revolt, a unique pyramid, a Jewish burial complex, and a columbarium cave.
