Ramallah & Al Bireh

The Palestinian village of Betin is located about 5 km northeast Ramallah. It is also known as the Bethel (House of God), as it is referred to in the Old Testament. Archaeological findings in the village have dated back to the Chalcolithic Period, and include pottery and tools. During the Byzantine period a church and monastery were built there. Later on, the Crusaders turned it into their stronghold. In 1892, Salah Eddin turned it into a mosque.

An old tower, known as the tower of Betin is believed to be the site where Abraham, on his way from Hebron to Nablus, built an altar. It is also believed to be the site where Jacob dreamt of a ladder reaching up to Heaven.
