One of the most famous archaeological sites in Israel is Beit She’arim, the ancient city that flourished during the Roman period. Many famous Jews are buried here in an extensive network of caves and tombs carved into the rock. The entrance to the necropolis is three elaborate stone doors, leading to sixteen burial halls. The walls are covered with ancient Jewish artwork and some of the stone coffins are decorated with intricate carvings. To learn more about Beit She’arim, click here.
