Carved from solid rock, the Tomb of Bene Hezir (left) and Zechariah’s Tomb (right) rest in the Kidron Valley, on the western slope of the Mount of Olives. They were built in the late second or early first century B.C. and are two of the most notable Jewish display tombs that became briefly popular after the erection of the Maccabean mausoleum in Modi’in. The Tomb of Bene Hezir stands with two Doric columns and triglyphs and metopes in the architrave, all borrowed from classical Greek architecture. The monumental Tomb of Zechariah features a pyramid-shaped roof similar to the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus.
