When Muhammad’s disciples were sent into the world to spread the Prophet’s message, they often met at the eastern crossroads known today as Horshat Tal.

According to legend, on one occasion 10 disciples stopped at Horshat Tal on their way from Mecca to Syria, and tied their horses to stakes they had brought with them from Mount Tabor. The next day, the sticks took root and began to blossom, eventually creating the magnificent Tabor oak forest that provides today’s Horshat Tal National Park with much of its wondrous beauty.
