Ezekiel's Tomb, located in Al Kifl, Iraq, is believed by Jews to be the tomb of the biblical prophet Ezekiel. On the walls inside appears Hebrew script under a dome with medieval Islamic floral designs. Iraqi Jewry was once one of the largest and most prominent Jewish communities in the Middle East. Until the mid-20th century, up to 5,000 Jews used to come to the tomb during Passover. An additional structure also identified as a possible tomb for Ezekiel can be found in Dezful, Iran.
