View looking northeast at the Mount of Olives and the Second Temple Tombs at its base—along the eastern side of the Kidron Valley.

Although the upper portion of the Mount of Olives is chalky, the lower portion, in which the monumental tombs are carved, is of hard limestone.

Note on the explanatory photo all of the important places in the photo:  Hebrew University, Russian Church of the Ascension, Dominus Flevit, Church of Mary Magdalene, Church of All Nations (Gethsemane), Pillar of Absalom, Tomb of the Sons of Hezir, Tomb of Zechariah, and the Kidron Valley.
