The Ein Kerem neighborhood is nestled in a stunning valley between Jerusalem's hills and mountains. Ein Kerem has quaint stone houses with arches, churches with bells that chime gaily and cobbled pathways.
Ein Kerem is a popular Christian pilgrimage site due to many Christian legends that are believed to have taken place here. Mary's Well is a Christian site of interest around which the village grew. The waters of Miriam's Well are considered holy by Christians and many pilgrims who visit take holy water away with them in bottles.
Since the Byzantine period several churches have been built in Ein Kerem. There are several active churches and monasteries in Ein Kerem. Modern development has not yet touched this beautiful neighborhood and it remains pastoral and cut off from the bustling city.
