I had a reason to visit so my encounter all-the-more special. I was there to find my GGG grandfather (Rabbi from Poland) and I did. Amazing experience.
However for others not so connected, a walk down into the Kedron Valley and then up the hill to the top of the cemetery is well worth the effort. The view of old Jerusalem is unmatched and you can see from the top the security wall the Isrealis are building between them and the West Bank.
It is hard to believe that the Jordanian army used to occupy this hillside back in the late 1960s. So much historically to take in, both recent and ancient.
Actually travelled there July 2011.
