Cave of Elijah on Mt. Carmel

Elijah on Mount Carmel

16 So Obadiah went to meet Ahab and told him, and Ahab went to meet Elijah. 17 When he saw Elijah, he said to him, “Is that you, you troubler of Israel?”18 “I have not made trouble for Israel,” Elijah replied. “But you and your father’s family have. You have abandoned the Lord’s commands and have followed the Baals. 19 Now summon the people from all over Israel to meet me on Mount Carmel. And bring the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”20 So Ahab sent word throughout all Israel and assembled the prophets on Mount Carmel. 
1 Kings 16-20
Elijah's cave is a holy site for three religions, Islam, Christianity, and Judaism.  It is one of the most sacred caves in The Holy Land.  This cave is where Elijah may have hid from Queen Jezebel.
