A holy site on the top of the Mt. Shmuel.
The mount is located about 6 KM northwest from Jerusalem and rises to the height of 885 meters above sea level.
A tradition from the Byzantine period mentions Nebi Samuel as the burial place of the Prophet Samuel, despite the Bible verse, which says he was buried in his own home of Rama: "Now Samuel died; and Israel were gathered together to mourn him, and they buried him in his own house at Rama" (I Samuel 25:1).
Since the Middle Ages, Mount Samuel has been acknowledged as the burial place of the Prophet by the Jews as well.
Today many Jews visit the place especially on 25 of the month Ayar, the day of Samuel`s death.
