Description: Azair [View from water looking up towards Ezra's Tomb. Settlement and boats moored on riverbank nearby. "We passed Ezra's Tomb and its clump of palms and got out to look at it. There's a very ancient tradition which is probably true, that the prophet is buried here, but the actual shrine is new."]
