The summit of the Mount of Temptation, is about 350 meters above sea level and commanding a magnificent and panoramic view of the Jordan Valley, is the site where Jesus Christ spent forty days and forty nights fasting and meditating during the temptation of Satan. A Greek Orthodox monastery was built in the 6th century over the cave where Jesus Christ stayed. The mountain; which from early Christian times has been called the Mount of Temptation; was referred to as "Mons Quarantana" by the Crusaders in the first half of the 12th century, and is locally known as Quruntul mountain (from Quaranta meaning forty, the number of days in the Gospel account of Christ's fast).
