There are two opinions regarding the burial location of Rabbi Yehudah HaNasi, either in Tzipori or in Bet Shearim, both sourced in conflicting passages of the Talmuds. It is probable that a tomb was original created for Rebbe in Bet Shearim but since he passed away on a Friday, he was instead buried in Tzipori, where he was located at the time.
