  • For the Jewish people, this grave is a place that has a special meaning. It is their resurrection when the Messiah comes is the tomb of the Jewish Christians who hit the slopes, overlooking the Temple Mount, the Mount of olives, with the Arc de Triomphe from the Golden Gate seats. It is also known as the tomb of the Prophet. 供enai are decay in the grave, piled stones. Hole in the bottom of the tombstone is, light the candle hole. Only the olive mountain itself is in a steep-sided keep tourist buses, unassisted around and it says to the grave with the special meaning of the Jewish people is not good.
