Tomb of Samuel

The traditional tomb of Samuel the prophet, known as Nebi Samwil, overlooks Jerusalem from the west. Scholars say the Crusaders, who where the first to mark this site as Samuel’s tomb, had confused Ramla with the Rama, Samuel’s real burial place, north of Jerusalem, although that was enough for Jewish travelers from then on to venerate it. It may indeed be biblical – perhaps Mizpah, where Samuel was appointed a judge. Today a synagogue is located beneath the cavernous Crusader church cum-mosque, and a panoramic view awaits from the roof.
