Next, we tour Anjara, which has an active Christian community. Our time here will include a visit to Our Lady of the Mountain shrine, located near where Elijah the Tishbite was born. The shrine is the only one devoted to Mary in the country, and it attracts many pilgrims annually. Tradition says that Jesus and his mother, along with the disciples, rested in a cave here while journeying from Jerusalem back to Galilee. The itinerary also has us visiting an orphanage here.
