Bet She‘arim is a ancient Jewish cemetery of the era that is called the “Mishna”, in Jewish history.

It is situated at the lower Galilee (northern part of Israel).

The uniqueness of the site stems from the fact that ancient people had carved into the hill and created tombs – deep inside the hills.

Archaeological finds show ancient courtyards, corridors and even steps- that lead to large halls; at which burial chambers and stone coffins can be found.
