The site itself is interesting as are most sites of historical importance but nowhere is it posted that there is an entrance fee but one is more than expected in the way out. 5 sheckels are demanded by the troll that lives in this tomb before exiting. I put all the small money I currently had in the what appeared to be a standard donation box but the petty troll apparently opened the box to check that I did pay the 5 sheckels as I was climbing the stairs. He proceeded to yell at me calling me a liar and to take back my money saying he didn't take money from thiefs or something like that. I would say that he was the dishonest one for not posting the entrance fee and then demanding a specific amount upon exit and then trying to shame me in front of all the other visitors. Also, if you bring a proper flashlight the illusion it's dispelled by the sheer amount of garbage in the tombs. The troll really should honor the site by cleaning the place up a bit.

Closed when we got there

Prior reviews of this site were good, so we were disappointed when we arrived on a Friday morning and could not get in. Therefore, please check the opening hours prior to making your way there.

A hidden gem on the mount of Olives

We stumbled across this attraction by happy accident, and were really pleased! The guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the heritage and really interpreted it to an excellent standard. The atmosphere was really good and it could be compared to an Indiana Jones movie, though of course it is a religious attraction and is respected...

We stumbled across this attraction by happy accident, and were really pleased! The guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the heritage and really interpreted it to an excellent standard. The atmosphere was really good and it could be compared to an Indiana Jones movie, though of course it is a religious attraction and is respected as such. I would really recommend this place it is close to the Dominus Flevit church and is also a welcome retreat from the hot Jerusalem sun.
