A stand and observation post established during the British Mandate, during the 1825 events.
The name originated in the cylindrical form that resembled a pill box.
The entrance to the post is through a steel door. Stairs lead from the door to the guard post on the top floor of the pillbox.
Through slits and windows, you can protect the stand and observe the area where the pillbox is located.
Such buildings (pillboxes) are scattered throughout the country from the days of the British Mandate. Some are neglected and some are historic sites.
The pillbox was adopted by students from the Ma’ayan School, for the community, in cooperation with the Municipality of Yavne, the Association of Urban Cities of Southern Judea, the Council for Conservation of Sites and the Ministry of Environmental Protection.
