Tomb of Rabban Gamliel in Yavne / Mausoleum of Abu Hurayrah


Abu Hurayrah, or Abu Horaira (603 – 681) was a companion of prophet Muhammad and his mausoleum is situated at Yavne.

According to tradition the Tomb of Rabban Gamliel is in the same building as the mausoleum of Abu Hurayrah.

When Vespasian offered Raban Yochanan anything he wanted, besides Yavneh and its sages - he requested that the princely lineage of Raban Gamliel be spared.
Raban Gamliel was the grandson of the great Jewish teacher Hillel the Elder. He was a leading authority in the Sanhedrin in the mid first century. He died nine years before the destruction of Jerusalem (63 CE).
