On the mountaintop there are two Christian churches. According to Christian tradition, Mount Tabor is the site of the Transfiguration of Christ, during which Jesus began to radiate light and was seen conversing with Moses, Peter and Elijah.
Roman Catholic church of the Franciscan order, Church of the Transfiguration, was built on the peak of Mount Tabor.
A modest Greek Orthodox church named after the Prophet Elijah is located below the large Roman Catholic church.
