Part of a Byzantine grave yard on the foot of a mountain in Abu ‘Alanda region. The entrance to the cemetery leads to a central hall branching out to three shrines with vaulted ceilings. There are seven stone grave yards more in the eastern and western Alkutin decorated with engineering and plant ornaments. The site encompasses two old mosques; the first lies directly on the top of the cave, while the other exists in the front of the yard. This was discovered in 1963 as a result of ruins excavations in the site itself were eight graves were found with a scull of a dog” the upper jaw”; the animal was supposed to be their guard. The discovery affirms that the cavemen were seven, including the shepherd, and the eighth is their dog which was buried at the threshold of the door to protect them, and not buried in the eighth grave which nobody knows who was buried in it.
