It is not often that the tomb of a Talmudic Sage is reached on a main road. Rabbi Yirmiyahu's tomb is on the grounds of the Ganei Hamat Hotel next to the Tveria Hot Springs.

Tradition has it that this Sage asked his disciples to bury him on a main road so that he would be prepared to rise the moment Mashiach arrives.
