“A stand out destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2013 via mobile

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.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2013

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.

“Great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2013

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.

“Quite a site”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2013

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.

“Inspiring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2012 via mobile

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.
