Mar Elias is a Greek-Orthodox monastery perched on the side of the road between Jerusalem and Bethlehem 

According to Christian tradition, Elijah rested here after fleeing the vengeance of Queen Jezebel (1 Kings 19).

In the past an indented rock in the back the monastery was presented as the place where Elijah reeted.
