[edit] Kever Rabbi Aba From the Zohar

Rabbi Aba is buried in a cave right above Nachal Amud where Wadi Amud meets Wadi Sechvi. Right above him is Kever Rabbi Yitzchak from the Zohar and across the wadi is Kever Rabbi Nechunya ben HaKane. Although Rabbi Chaim Vital describes the location of the Kever based on the words of the Arizal, its location was lost over the years. Yisroel Meir Gabbai and Ohalei Tzadikim say they have identified the correct location of the Kever based on their research.
