Cave of the Patriarchs
The Cave of the Patriarchs or Tomb of the Patriarchs is a series of caves located in the heart of the old city of Hebron in the southern West Bank. According to the Abrahamic religions, the cave and adjoining field were purchased by Abraham as a burial plot. Over the cave stands a large rectangular enclosure dating from the Herodian era. The site is considered by Jews to be the second holiest place in the world, after the Temple Mount.
