בית הקברות של הטמפלרים
בית הקברות שימש את הקהילה הטמפלרית משנת 1878. קבורים בו תושבי המושבה הגרמנית ומנהיגי התנועה הטמפלרית. בקבר אחים קבורים בני הקהילה שנקברו קודם לכן במושבות הגרמניות בשרונה ובווילהלמה.
הצורך לבנות בית קברות טמפלרי נבע מהתנגדות הבישוף הפרוטסטנטי לקבור טמפלרים בבית הקברות בהר ציון, בטענה שאינם נוצרים.

مقبرة طائفة الهيكليين
أقيمت عالم ۱۸۷۸ بعد رفض المطران البروتستانتي دفن أموات الهيكليين في جبل صيون ، مدعيا أنهم ليسوا مسيحيين .

THE TEMPLARS CEMETERY
Built in 1878 since the Protestant Bishop refused to bury the Templars in the Mount Zion Protestant cemetery, claiming they were not Christians.

Translation of the text on the sign:
[The text in English is significantly shorter than the text in Hebrew, below is a translation of the Hebrew text]
The cemetery has been used by the Templar community since 1878. The residents of the German colony and the leaders of the Templar movement are buried there. Members of the community who were previously buried in the German colonies in Sarona and Wilhelma are buried in a mass grave.
The need to build a Templar cemetery stemmed from the Protestant bishop’s opposition to burying Templars in the Mount Zion cemetery, claiming they were not Christians.
