Ibrahimi Mosque / Cave of the Patriarchs


Hebron, Palestinian Territory, Occupied (PS)
The Cave of the Patriarchs or the Cave of Machpelah is a series of subterranean caves located in a complex called by Muslims the Sanctuary of Abraham or Ibrahimi Mosque. The name is either a reference to the layout of the burial chamber, or alternatively refers to the biblical couples, i.e.: cave of the tombs of couples.
