美髯公押沙龍的墓，或者叫紀念柱。2019年1月到以色列的第一晚夜爬橄欖山時路過就看見了，在汲淪谷中有押沙龍和撒迦利亞的兩座大墓。從耶路撒冷看下去兩座墓很大，很壯觀，比之前在網路圖片上看著更大！ 押沙龍因為他妹妹的緣故……篡他父親大衛的王位，最終被殺死，而他生前所建的紀念柱並沒有被拆毀，反而留下來成為了他的羞恥。向眾人展示，讓他被唾棄。長期以來也一直有個風俗，就是過往的人群朝他仍石塊！ 和撒迦利亞的... more »The tomb of the sands of the Mare, or the column of the sage. The first night of january 2019 to Israel to climb the mountain, you can see the road, in the valley of the sabotany and Zachariah's tomb. Look down on Jerusalem The tomb is very big, very beautiful, bigger than the previous view in the road map! Because of his sister's death... Usued his father's throne, the most dead, and the columns he built in his life were not torn down, but left his shame. Show to the people and let him be spit away. There has always been a vulgarity in the past, that is, the past crowd is still stoned towards him! Like the tomb of Zachariah, it is carved from a stone piece of rock, the bottom half of which is made of splendour and stacked on top. The columns are very tall and huge. The section along the base under the front post is 180 cm, only a little shorter than me. The whole body is 20 meters high, very tall! Archaeologists say this was built at the end of the second temple a thousand years later, but archaeologists have never relied on the years of the millennium or even surpassing the world. Archaeologists also believe that Jesus' tomb is a tomb church, not a flower tomb, but the truth is the opposite. In addition, there is a cave behind the tomb, and the ground on the Jerusalem hill shows the cave called the Shasaffa Cave, which is also a burial cave. But it's a way to go. Its valley is the Shafa Valley, the site of the doomsday judgment. There are so many stories about the valley that I find very interesting and worth a visit.
Although this ancient tomb with a well noticeable conical roof is traditionally ascribed to Absalom, the rebellious son of King David of Israel (circa 1000 BCE), most certainly it was from much later age. But it has so much tradition connected to it and it such a recognizable sight of the city that it's already has a value of its own. Interesting fact: residents of Jerusalem would bring their unruly children to the site to teach them what became of a rebellious son.
A 2000+ year old Jewish necropolis set into a valley under the eastern part of the Old city's walls. Tombs range from luxurious structures carved into the lime stone rocks to tiny borrows carved under the cliff. Strewn around the area are the remains of hundreds of headstones and grave markers ranging from before the time of Jesus christ to the 19th century. A hauntingly beautiful though somewhat disturbing site
