It's very difficult to describe this site, its not like any cemetery. I had seen before. With fantastic views across the valley into the city of Jerusalem, its definitely one of the places I intend to re visit.

Learn why so many pay a lot of money to be buried so close to the Eastern Gates of Jerusalem. Also why you see rocks on top of the tombs.

From Mount of Olives is a great view on the tombs. It is a bit hard to find on my own so better to take a taxi. If it offers a meter free trip, 70 Shekel is a convenient price.

hundreds of graves on the Mt of Olives facing the old city. our guide explained the history/meaning of the site=quite the story. A quiet place to stand and reflect.

Stood and looked in awe at this wonderful place. Took many photos and will in time do some painting to remember this place by. It's a steep walk from the bottom road and a little slippy underfoot.
