“Majestic”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Incredible panoramic views. Very interesting Jewish cemetery full of history including the tomb of Menahem Begin, Prime Minister of Israel who was active with the peace talks with Egyptian President Anwar Sedat. We enjoyed our tour guide, Samuel, who taught us that placing a stone on the burial site pays respect.

Reviewed May 2, 2012

You just get AWESTRUCK, almost overwhelmed with the antiquity and vastness of all the ancient yet even current grave sights. Very heart moving.

The location offers a lovely view of the Old City. There is much historical and cultural significance at that site.
