Jerusalem, Alabama

There are two Jerusalems in Alabama in Fayette and Lawrence counties.

Ave Maria Grotto, known throughout the world as "Jerusalem in Miniature," is a landscaped park designed to provide a natural setting for the 125 architectural miniatures created of stone and concrete as the lifetime work of Brother Joseph Zoettl, a Benedictine monk of St. Bernard Abbey in Alabama.
Midway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, “Mini Israel” features over 350 beautifully crafted exact-replica models of historical, religious, archeological, and modern sites in Jerusalem and throughout the Land of Israel.
