Rachel’s Tomb is identified by all three major religions; Christian, Jewish & Muslim as the burial site of Rachel, the biblical matriarch wife of Jacob, mother to his twelve sons whom died giving birth to their son Benjamin (Genesis 35:16-19). In the New Testament Rachel’s misfortune implies as a type of prophecy of the death of the helpless babies killed by King Herod (Jeremiah 31:14, Matthew 2:16-18).

The Garden Tomb in Jerusalem is an alternate location of prayer and reflection, believed by some to be a possible location of the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. Here you can also see a rock formation that perhaps is the one mentioned in the bible as Golgotha or also known as "Calvary."
