To the south of the modern city of Nablus (OT Shechem) is located Mount Gerizim—a mountain that is holy to the Samaritans.
Above is the well-preserved stair case that leads up to the "Sacred Area" on Mt. Gerizim.
There, the Samaritans built a series temples to worship God. Today the community is very small—less than 700 persons—but they still participate in ancient rituals (especially notable is their Passover celebration in the spring of the year).
