The “Tomb of the Prophets” is a large burial cave near the top of Mount of Olives identified by Jewish and Christian tradition as the burial site of Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi (cf. Mat. 23:29).
The site has 26 burial niches, and two adjoining burial caves. Inscriptions indicate that the site was also used for burial of Christians in the Byzantine period. The property is owned by the Russian Orthodox church, but is kept by a local Arab who lives on top of the tomb.
