Owner description: Mount Gerizim covers an area of a hundred acres and contains the remains of the Hellenistic city and Byzantine church compound. The tour lasts about an hour and a half to two hours. The site also includes a museum, church, Passover sacrificial site and a tahini paste factory. We recommend combining your tour with a preliminary tour of the Samaritan neighborhood. For opening hours, please visit our website.

Our tour guide showed us the views from the top of Mt Gerizim and looking across to Mt Ebal and down to NAblus (Schechem)/ The Samaritan ruis are well presented and it is intriguing to hear the stories of different peoples associated with the site. Very happy we visited here.

Remains of the Samaritans most sacred place. Archeologist and historians believe that this is the place were Samaritans built their temple replacing the Jerusalem temple. An impressive church was built there over the remains of the temple. You can see the remains only.Beautiful view of Nablus , a Palestinian city. The old tomb of biblical Joseph can be seen from a far. Also the archeological remains of the old city of Shechem can be identified from a far. An historic place mentioned in the Bible several times.
Upon arrival, the entrance to the site is closed for security reasons. You have to call the guard using a bell situated at the door for him to open the gate.
The place is in a security zone C, in the West Bank.

There were no other visitors and we had to honk the horn a bunch at the gate to get the guards to open up. It was cloudy and even drizzled a bit but the views were amazing.

If you're Christian you can't get into the Dome of the Rock where Abraham was going to offer Isaac but the Samaritans believe it happened here, and, as undeveloped as this place is was it was a lot easier to imagine a ram getting its horns caught in a thicket nearby.

Thank Ken B
