More pics of Fake Arab tombs near the Siloam Pool in Ancient Jerusalem
My son Nathaniel Ritmeyer was in Israel last month and took these photographs of the location of the fake tombs at the southern tip of the City of David, above the stepped Siloam Reservoir and King’s Garden.
The fake tombs are located above the high stone wall at the southern end of the City of David, looking north. Below the stone wall is the northern cliff of the Siloam Reservoir. The exit is near the grey car and the steep road beyond it leads up into the City of David. The road on the very right, where the white car is parked, runs through the Kedron Valley toward the Gihon Spring. Photo: Nathaniel Ritmeyer 20 Feb. 2011
