Anjara

The ancient town of Anjara is located in the tree-covered hills once known as the Forests of Gilead. During the New Testament era, Jesus preached and ministered throughout this region. While passing through Anjara, his mother Mary is said to have rested in one of the nearby caves. Long a holy place for pilgrims, the modern shrine of Our Lady of the Mountain is an official Catholic pilgrimage site.
