The Burning Bush at St. Katherine's Monastery, Sinai
Egypt

This living bush grows inside the walls of St. Katherine's Monastery. It is said to have come from the bush that Moses saw burning and is now a place for pilgrims from all over the world. Visitors get very emotional when they write their wishes and prayers on small pieces of paper and stick them into the bush.
