Mount Scopus Botanical Garden
The Botanical Garden was established during the British Mandate at the edge of the Hebrew University campus. Go through the security entrance and walk up the path leading to the upper part of the campus and to the garden. Signs in Hebrew and Latin identify the trees and plants. Of particular interest is the Second Temple period burial cave discovered in 1902. It contained an ossuary bearing the inscription: "The bones of Nicanor of Alexandria who made the gate." Nicanor is mentioned in ancient Hebrew sources as the wealthy man who donated the great bronze or copper doors to the Temple Court. Buried here also are two early Zionist leaders, Leon Pinsker and Menahem Ussishkin.
