Tomb of the Patriarchs


Categories: , ,


This cutaway view of the Tomb of the Patriarchs shows a double cave that is located inside and below the floor of the Herodian building. The wall with the smooth masonry, topped by the pilaster construction, is identical to the walls of the Herodian Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The Machpelah Cave is located in the centre of Hebron and is venerated by Jews and Muslims alike.
