Israel, Jerusalem - Kidron Valley (1)
This curious structure is known in Arabic as Tantour Faroun (Pharaohs Hat). In fact its a funerary monument (nefesh) marking the entrance to a substantial catacomb with eight burial chambers cut into the cliff behind. It probably dates from the reign of Herod the Great. In guidebooks its sometimes marked as the Tomb of Absalom, but the legend that this is the tomb of Davids rebellious son is a medieval fantasy.
