Nebi Samuel is the place where crusaders first saw Jerusalem on June 5th, 1099. It took them 3 years to get there (from Europe). They were so happy (no wonder) so they called the place - "Mount Joy." It is a one hour walk from there to the Holy Sepluchre (in Jerusalem). This photo is a current day archeological dig taking place in Nebi Samuel (directed by Michael Dadon). It shows the horse stables.
