The “Milk Grotto” near the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem marks by local tradition the place where Mary breast fed Jesus after his birth. The local tradition argues that a drop of Mary’s milk that fell on the floor of the cave cuased its rock to turn white, which is indeed the colour of the local chalk of the cave.

The “Milk Grotto” is in the Bethlehem which is under the control of the Palestinian Authority, which means only a Palestinian (or an Israeli Arab) guide can guide you at that site.
