A stroll through the approximately 5,000 monuments in this cemetery, founded in 1902, among sand dunes and now surrounded by city streets, is a unique way to explore Tel Aviv's history.

Some of Zionism's founding fathers and mothers, stars in Tel Aviv's cultural and political firmament are interred here. Among them are essayist Ahad Haam, Tel Aviv's first mayor, Meir Dizengoff, poets Shaul Tchernikovsky and Chaim Nachman Bialik and his wife Manya, writer Deborah Baron and Zionist leader Haim Arlosoroff.

World-renowned humorist Ephraim Kishon (1924-2005) is also buried here.
