  • Worth to see. In the middle of a deep ditch near Bet Golgotha and Bet Uraiel is the so-called Tomb of Adam, which is a hollow in a large block of stone. There is nothing in the middle. Two rooms, which once served as the cell by hermits. The very idea of forge in the rock the other Jerusalem is worthy of admiration.
