Transcript ACRE, THE KEY OF PALESTINE. 101 About two miles due south of the convent, on a level space half-way up a picturesque winding valley called Wady es Siyeh, _UJt, on the western slope of Mount Carmel, there is a ruin known as Ed Deir (the Convent). It is close to a copious fountain, 4t 'Ain es Siyeh " (the ^ Rf RUINS ON THE WEST SIDE OF ATHLIT. The fortress was built bv the Templars in the year 1218, and was the last place held by the Crusaders in Palestine. It was taken by the Sultan Melek el Ashraf el Khalil after his conquest of Acre in 1291. Pilgrim's Spring), and near to a large and partly artificial cave, which, according to a very ancient tradition, was a favourite retreat of Elijah, and is regarded as a sacred "place " (mukdm) by the Mohammedans (refer to page 241, vol. L). The rum, Ed Deir, probably marks the site of the convent said to have been built by Rrocardus (the second general of the order of the Carmelites) "at the fountain of Elijah." It had but a brief existence, for it was pillaged and its inmates were massacred in the year .238. The Carmelites did not re-occupy this site, and the building gradually fell to decay. ?5
