Biblical Tzora was in the region where Samson lived, and buried (Judges 16:31). Later it became a fortified city (I Chr. 11:12) and was inhabited also in the days of Nehemiah (11:29). An Arab village named “Sar’ah” preserved the name of the Biblical site. The site has not been excavated yet, but two tombs of Muslim Sheikhs were converted in the 1980’s and were re branded as the tombs of Samson and his father, Manoah.
