History

The moshav was founded in 1950 by immigrants from India (mainly Cochin) and Iran. Its name is derived from Ayn Ghazal (lit. Deer Spring), the depopulated Arab village on whose land it was built. Agricultural income is derived from raising cattle, sheep and chickens growing vegetables and flowers, and tourism.
