The name of Vilna Gaon Eliyahu ben Shlomo Zalman (1720–1797)—one of the most prominent Jewish sages and a world-famous Torah and Talmud analyst—put Vilnius on the map as the Jerusalem of Lithuania. His former house is marked with a memorial plaque and a monument in his honour (created by Kazimieras Valaitis) can be found near the house.
