“Joseph’s tomb” is a funerary monument on the outskirts of Shechem  (modern “Nablus”), near Tell Balata 

Since the 4th century the site is venerated as the burial place of Joseph (Joshua 24:32).

Although it is under the jurisdication of the Palestinian Authority, occasionally Jewish pilgrim still visit the site.

The site was burnt and vandalized several times by locals of Nablus, and so It is not certain that it always is accesible.
