Jeremiah Grotto

Intrigued by the findings of the ancient maps of Jerusalem which may indicate the location of Jesus' tomb. One particular painting, annotated in French and therefore also presumably drawn in France, identifies a place near the site of the crucifixion as "Jeremiah's Grotto". Jeremiah's Grotto is thought to be the place where the Prophet Jeremiah retired to write the Book of Lamentations, a book of the Old Testament which chronicles the destruction of Jerusalem in 589BC. The Real Discoveries team went looking for Jeremiah's Grotto in the area described by this map, and found a cavern fitting its description right near the site of the Garden Tomb, which is currently being used as a banana warehouse. The owner was happy to  confirmed that the locals indeed believed this to be Jeremiah's Grotto.
