The Prophet Samuel’s Tomb Is a Holy Site for Jews, Muslims, and Christians

This tomb, located in a synagogue below a mosque built atop the ruins of a church, is considered a holy site by Muslims, Jews, and Christians alike. It’s believed to be the final resting place of the great prophet Samuel, an important figure in the Old Testament and the Quran.

Located on a hilltop in the West Bank village of Nabi Samwil, just north of the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramot, the site is a place where Jews and Muslims both come to worship, and do so peacefully. The hilltop offers stunning views of the surrounding area, including the city of Jerusalem off in the distance.
