Nabi Samuil / Nabi Samwil is historical site on a mountain top 4 km NW of Jerusalem.
By Tradition the building at its top is over the burial place of Prophet Samuel, from which it recieves its name.
The current building is a Crusaders era church, converted later to a mosque, yet since 1967 most of its visitors are Jews (Welcome to Israel!..)
Excavations around the hilltop uncovered remains from various periods, although non from the time of Samuel the prophet (again – welcome to Israel..).
