Attractions

Mukhraka. Carmelite Monastery.

Muhraq Monastery is located on Mount Carmel. The biblical story says that once on this mountain there was a dispute between King Ahab and the prophet Elijah about the true God and true faith. The king was defeated in this argument. Later, already at the time of the Crusaders, an order of Carmelites appeared on Mount Carmel, for which the prophet Elijah became a spiritual patron. At the monastery there is a sculpture depicting Elijah, who brought a fire sword over the conquered priest. The monastery itself is quite small. Next to it there is an observation deck from which you can see a stunning panorama of the Jezreel Valley. The monastery is surrounded by a stunningly beautiful garden where you can take a leisurely stroll while admiring the beauty of the surroundings.
