The Myth About Judas Cave!

The Myth About Judas Cave!

Have you ever been to Judas Cave? As what the Filipinos described of that place. For some believe that this cave was the hiding place of Judas Iscariot, one of Jesus Christ disciples whom betrayed him, for several months before he hang himself. After the death of Christ Judas escaped from Jerusalem and went to Saudi Arabia for hiding.

Well I can’t find any historical record of Judas Cave. As for me it just a myth. May I say it just a folk tale or urban legend story. If you have any record about Judas Cave I appreciate most if you could share it with me and the world.

The fact is that there is a cave in the heart of Al Hasa, Saudi Arabia. After a four long hours drive from Riyadh city we finally reached Judas Cave. Before we arrived at the cave there are piles of natural carved stones which look so amazing. As if you see giant mushrooms made of stone that guarding the surrounding.

The cave entrance is two meters wide and several meters high. It took us ten to fifteen minutes exploring the cave, of course including the picture taking. You can feel the cold breeze air inside the cave. Finally as we went out the hot air that approached us. We really enjoyed the place. It is a nice tourist attraction. As I have heard that the local government of Al Hasa plans to improve the area to boost tourism.

Oh Wow! How great and beautiful of God’s creation.
