“I visited cemeteries best”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Is nice climb to see the old city from the top, just this. You can and absolutely should skip the cemetery and save your time.

“Spectacular view”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

This cemetery is like nothing I've ever seen before. The earliest graves date back 2000 years. It can be viewed from the top of The Mount of Olives or from the steep road that runs beside the cemetery.

“A stand out destination”
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”
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.
