The name of this big, busy town, Al-Eizariya, comes from the legendary Lazarus, whose grave is here, under a church. Jesus is credited with bringing Lazarus back to life four days after his death at this location, which at the time was known as Bethany. Despite being blocked off from Jerusalem by the separation barrier, the tomb is today a well-known destination for pilgrimages.
Church of St. Lazarus
It’s a church in Larnaca, Cyprus, from the late ninth century. It is a property of the autonomous Greek Orthodox Church of Cyprus.
Lazarus of Bethany, who is the subject of a miracle described in the Gospel of John, in which Jesus raises him from the dead, is the New Testament character for whom the Church of Saint Lazarus is named. Eastern Orthodox legend holds that Lazarus traveled to Cyprus after being compelled to leave Judea due to rumors of assassination plots at some point following the Resurrection of Jesus. Paul the Apostle and Barnabas chose him to serve as the first Bishop of Kition there (now Larnaca). He is claimed to have lived for another thirty years after that and was buried there once again after passing away.
Garden of Gethsemane
According to the four New Testament Gospels, Jesus suffered the anguish in the garden and was captured there before he was crucified. It is a garden at the foot of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. It has a significant significance for Christians. On church land, there are a number of little olive groves that are all close to one another and symbolic of Gethsemane in the Bible.
Jesus is reputed to have loved to pray and reflect in this lovely garden, which was beyond the walls of Jerusalem, among a grove of olive trees.
Salman al-Farisi Mausoleum and Mosque
One of the Prophet’s most well-known companions is Salman al Farsi (pbuh). This location is his Maqam even though it is not his grave and is where he is believed to have spent a large amount of time. This is a really important destination to visit because he is related to most sufi orders worldwide. The Church of the Ascension and Rabia Al Basri’s maqam are also nearby.
