  Ein Kerem, Jerusalem
by jacobzoethout

Ein Kerem is a pleasant, quiet neighborhood in Western Jerusalem. In the past it used to be a village, but it has became a part of Jerusalem. The neigborhood is popular among artists, and there are some art galleries.
Ein Kerem is also the village where John the Baptist was born; in the church of John the Baptist there is a grotto which is believed to be the place of birth of John.
Ein Kerem is not an easy place to visit by public transport; we took a taxi and hitchhiked back to the centre.
