Samson’s Tomb

March 22nd 2011

The road leading to Samson’s tomb in Tel Zor’a is lined with picturesque picnic locations and sculptures, and goes through the President’s Forest. The burial site of Samson is also known as his birth place, and therefore, the area is known as “Samson’s Country.” Once done climbing Tel Zor’a, visitors will see Samson’s blue-domed, white-washed tomb along the backdrop of the Judean Mountains. Also part of the view is Kibbutz Zor’a, established in 1948, and Moshav Eshta’ol, established a year later. Along the path to the tomb, visitors read signposts displaying Samson’s story as the last remaining judge during the biblical period.
