Descripción del sitio
This is the second holiest site in Judaism after the Western Wall and very important in Islam and Christianity as well. It consists of a walled shrine complex built by Herod the Great in the 1st century BC (the only such building to survive), which shelters the burial caves of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and their wives. Today the site is shared between Muslims and Jews, with most of the structure fitted as a mosque.
