Yad Avshalom, Tomb of Absalom יד אבשלום קבר אבשלום
Structure in General
The shrine dates back to the first century B.C.E. and has the hellenistic influences of that period.
Although carved nearly a millennium after Avshalom rebelled against his father King David and was run through with a javelin by the King's captain, stones were traditionally thrown at the tomb to show disgust.
Jews favoured being buried on Mount of Olives as close to Zechariah Tomb as possible, distancing themselves from Avshalom's Tomb.
Carved out of the rock completely separate from the slope behind it with carved columns and a rounded pointed top.
