Location: Ayalon-Canada Park.
Description: Here, according to Muslim tradition, is the tomb of the legendary commander Ibn Jabal, who died in the plague of Emmaus. According to the Muslim geographer Yaqut (13th century), 25,000 people died in the plague of Emmaus, which caused the Arabs to move their camp away from there. The building was built in the Mamluk period (13th century). The view of the Ayalon Valley is spectacular and encompasses the coastal plain from Netanya to Ashdod (Waze: Sheikh Ibn Jabel).
Directions: From the Tel-Aviv–Jerusalem road (Route 1), at Shoresh Interchange turn towards Mevo Horon and Ramallah (Route 3). Drive 1 km and turn right at the park’s main gate.
