The Three Patriarchs are names of these large Navajo sandstone cliffs within Zion Canyon. Isaac, Abraham and Jacob were the towering figures of the Old Testament of the Christian Bible, while these cliffs are three towering cliffs that rise out of Zion Canyon along the Virgin River, named by an early white visitor who was a Methodist minister.
