Pilgrimage as Christian derived concept, relates mostly to Catholicism, is tied to repentance and forgiveness of sins and is bound up in acts of devotion and cult that aims to find the roots and strengthen beliefs.An important local characteristic connected with grave of holy men is the adoration of sacred trees. Historically, the Terebinth tree was sacred by Canaanites nations who lived in ancient Israel, and somewhere in history, the oak tree was joined to the terebinth. A pair of an oak and a terebith, a mixed wood or a group of the same specie, can be found at or around several sanctified sites. This tradition survives Judaism Hellenism, and all cultures that dominated the area since, including Islam.
