3  Now Shmuel had died and all Yisrael made lament for him; and he was buried in his own town of Rama. And Shaul had forbidden [recourse to] ghosts and familiar spirits in the land.

 28:3 And he was buried in his own town of Rama

Traditional Tomb of Shmuel the Prophet

When the prophet Shmuel dies on the twenty-eighth day of the Hebrew month of Iyar, he is buried in Rama. According to tradition, Shmuel’s burial site is in the northwest outskirts of modern Jerusalem, near the neighborhood of Ramot. It has long been a place of prayer and study for the Jewish people. Given its strategic location along the road between Yerushalayim and Tel Aviv, the Arabs used it during the War of Independence and the Six Day War as a base from which to fire at Israeli soldiers. This holy site was liberated by the Israeli Army during the Six Day War.
