Description

The park, rededicated as the Harry Wilf Park by the Jerusalem Foundation in 1996,[4] is home to the Lion's cave. Jewish, Muslim, and Christian legends all maintain that the remains of their faithful are buried there, and that a lion, created by God, was placed there to guard the dead.[5] Jewish tradition states that the bones of Jews killed by the Seleucid Greeks are buried there. Muslims state that Allah transferred remains from the nearby Mamilla cemetery to the cave to save them from a fire. Christians believe that the cave houses the remains of monks who were massacred by the Persians in 614.[5] There are also Muslim graves at the bottom of the park which dates to the 13th century.[6]-Wikipedia
