Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I saw this as part of a tour of the West Bank. We were able to visit the mosque but not the synagogue as services were going on. The mosque was so-so but we were able to see Abraham’s tomb from a distance.

Touring Hebron was also very enlightening and pretty depressing. Very glad that I saw it, however.

This second holiest site in Israel for the Jewish people is an excellent place to visit. The building was built 2000 years ago and still is in great shape. The tomb markers are off limits to non-Muslims but can be viewed via windows. Due to tensions only half of the site is open to Jews, while the other half is open to Muslims most of the year. The regular bus service from Jerusalem's Central Bus Station is the perfect way to travel there if you do not have a car.

Excellent and holy place to visit. It is safe. Strong security is there. Muslims and Jews are separated there, by different entrances, so quarreling does not exist there. You might get asked your religion, but that is normal in Palestinian tourist sites. Arabs enter one area while non Palestinians (including non Arab tourists, including most Westerners) enter on the Jewish side.

It had been many years since I visited the Cave of the Patriarchs, or Mearat Hamechpela as it is called in hebrew.
The site is amazing at the same time as is historical, the building is magnificente and remnant of the Herodian period, you can visit the jewish side as the muslims have a different entrance, due to security considerations.
Normally the place is full of jewish people praying to the Patriarchs, and we also received a very interesting explanation by a local person that has visited more of the place, as today the lower parts are closed to the public.

In all the world, there is no place I love and celebrate my Creator more than in Hebron at the graves of Adam & Eve, Abraham & Sarah, Jacob & Leah, and Isaac & Rebecca at the Cave of the Patriarchs.
Throughout the ages and in the Bible it is known and highly praised for the sacred place it is!
Also nearby is the Tomb/Graves of Jesse the father of King David and Ruth.
I will return here over and over again!

In Hebrew this is called Maarat HaMachpelah which means the cave of multiples. According to Jewish tradition and Bible text this is the burial place of Avraham and Sara, Itzhak and Rivah, Yakov and Leah. Rachel is buried in Bethlem.

The structure is considered to be the oldest building in the world that has continually been used for the same propose that it was originally built. Tomb of the patriarchs.

The site is holy to Jews, Muslims and Christians. It is currently divided physically between Jews and Muslims, during most of the year each group are only allowed to enter and pray on 'their' side. Aside for a few special holidays for each group during which they have access to the entire building and the other group can not enter at all.

Add to your must visit list.
