Ketef HinnomTomb 12

View looking west at Tomb 12. This tomb, as all of them, were originally burial caves but the roof and the front of it have been carved away during ancient and more recent times.

Clearly visible is the central depression in which people could stand, and around it, on the right, back, and left are the flat surfaces of the three burial benches.
