Burqin Church

Phone Number: Father Elias Awad: +970 599805586
Opening Hours: Daily from 8:00a.m. – 6:00p.m.
Burqin Village, Jenin

The elegant, candlelit Burqin Church marks the spot where Jesus healed ten lepers of their disease (Luke 17:11-19). The first Church was built on the site in the Byzantine era. An ancient stone priests chair from that time can still be seen next to a very impressive stone iconostasis. At the far end of the structure is the cave where the lepers stayed.

Nowadays, Burqin’s small Orthodox Christian community worships in the Church that bares name of St. George. Recent excavations inside the monastery revealed the burial places of two monks. Their belongings, found in the tombs, are displayed inside the Church.
