  Muhraka

In the southern outskirts of Daliyat el Karmil there is a little monastery called Muhraka. This is the highest point on the Carmel. The monastery stands in the place where, according to tradition, the prophet Elija conflicted the 400 false prophets.

From the roof of the monastery there is a great view of the Jezreel Valley, stretching eastwards from the Carmel to the Jordan river. According to the Bible, right after the conflict, prophet Elija went to King Ahab's palace down in the valley.

See more in the travelogue.

Directions: From Daliyat el Karmil drive southwards, right on the south exit from the village there is a left turn to the Muhraka.
