Church of the Transfiguration is located in Mount Tabor or in Hebrew (har tavor=הר תבור)
Transfiguration In the Bible
In the New Testament Jesus is Transfigured and becomes radiant in glory upon a mountain. At that point the prophets Elijah and Moses appear and Jesus begins to talk to them.
The church today is run by Franciscans monks and every year there is a mass in the Transfiguration day
What to see at the Church of the Transfiguration?
You will see a beautiful Orthodox and Catholic church which is separated by a wall.
In the entrance there is a chapel dedicated to Moses and Elijah who were seen with Jesus during the Transfiguration
The place is so beautiful and the views are breathtaking that you won’t want to leave this place considered by some tourists as Heaven on earth.
How to get there?
A tour bus will bring you to the village and from there you can continue by bike, walking or by small buses which takes you to the top of the mountain.
