We started our tour here, where we reviewed Elijah Bible account. It really brings everything alive.

Stop by the gift shop on the way to the upper lookout balcony. The shop offers very reasonably priced souvenirs, that are for a good cause. Bring cash, no credit cards are accepted. The view from the look-out of the Jezreel Valley is spectacular.

The monaster itself is modestly decorated. The attractio is the marvelous view over all of Northern Israel from the terrace above the chapel. The courtyard is pleasant.

At or near the place Elijah challenged the prophets of Baal, it was a nice place to have a devotion and let history come alive.

There are many reasons to visit this place, for its wonderful vies, location, and history. It is well kept, and a must visit location in the northern part of Israel.

We could see great views from the upper landing. I especially enjoyed the garden of succulents. A peaceful spot where you can orient yourself and look on the Jezreel Valley. Muhraqa (the Scorching) is said to be the spot where Elijah's sacrifice was accepted by...More
