"Meron - Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai Tomb" Meron by Bregman

Meron Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 6 photos

Meron is famous for the tomb of Rabbi Shimon Bar-Yochai%. Even though the area is packed with sacred tombs, this one is considered the most sacred. Around the year you will find people here praying in the little synagogue, eating around it or buying sacred relics from the many merchants who surround the place.

But, one day a year there is much more activity. At
Lag Ba'Omer, hundreds of thousands people come here for a huge festival of fire.
