Samara Ruins are the remains of a Samaritan village (built on more ancient Roman era ruins), with impressive findings showing Samaritan customs. The synagogue faces Mt. Gerizim and still has the original benches built into the walls. There are also the remains of a mosaic floor and two standing columns, a cistern and a ritual bath (separate from the cistern, unlike in Jewish custom) several burial caves, the city gate – with its prominent lintel – and other public and private buildings. Most of the mosaics have been removed and taken to the Good Samaritan museum. Access is by car, to the foot of the site, turning north from the main road (Route 557) between Enav and Avne Hefets.
