The traditional house of Simon the Tanner.  A Mohammadan sanctuary.  On the south side of the court of the house there is an arched recess, in which a lamp is always kept burning, and where pilgrims perform their devotions.  A well of good water and a fig tree add to the attractiveness of this 'place'.
