With the exception of Capernaum, I think one always has to take Israeli religeous sites with some caution. I walked to this site trying to evaluate its genuineness according to scripture and I will go for it being the correct place. It needed to be...More

It is a popular place among local folk. But I have seen more dramatic and impressive views. To go if you have spare time

I liked it very much because it’s not that crowded, the views are excellent and the history behind it makes the whole place that much better... It was a very enjoyable stop!! No need to post any pics, they don’t do the place any justice!!

What a beautiful view, overlooking so many important historical areas. And to think that Jesus actually stood there. It is the perfect spot to meditate and the walk from the parking lot is short and paved the whole way. It would be a great spot...More
