  1. En dehors de l'enceinte du monstère, les moines, au cours des âges, ont aménagé un jardin avec de la terre qu'ils ont apporté et ont construit une citerne pour l'irrigation. On peut trouver de nombreuses variétés d'arbres fruitiers (abricotiers, cerisiers, oliviers et pruniers) ainsi qu'un jardin potager.

  2. THE HORNED BEAST.- St. Catherine's Monastery is an Orthodox monastery on the Sinai peninsula. It incorporates the Burning Bush seen by Moses and contains many valuable icons. Above the monastery is Mount Sinai where Moses received the Ten Commandments from God. Because God spoke to Moses in these places, this area is sacred to three world religions: Christianity, Islam and Judaism.
    The Monastery Garden, where this tree is to be found, was created over many years by the monks. Soil was brought here and tanks were made to store water for irrigation. It contains fruit trees including olives, apricots and plums and produces a variety of vegetables.
