The capital of the Israeli state of Jerusalem is located on a picturesque plateau in the Judean Mountains between the two seas – the Mediterranean and the Dead. Many people consider this ancient city one of the most holy places in the world, as Jerusalem is of great importance to the three largest world religions: Judaism, Islam and Christianity.

Jerusalem landmarks

   As with any city, Jerusalem’s appeal and splendor is best understood by walking its streets. However, depending on your interests, you won’t want to miss out on at least some of these top attractions.

   The Temple Mount is a stunning complex with over 100 different landmarks to admire at its summit. These include bubbling fountains, stately arches, and detailed mosaics that adorn the wall at the foot of Mount Moriah, the site where Abraham intended to sacrifice his son Isaac.

Al-Aqsa Mosque. This meetinghouse can accommodate up to 5,000 worshipers at a time. Reconstructed by the Caliph Al-Walid in 705, the mosque was later taken over by the Templars. You can still see the remains of Crusader architecture on its façade. If you are lucky enough to buy a guided tour of Al Aqs, be sure to visit the intricate Mihrab (a niche in the wall of the mosque), pointing towards Mecca.

   Via Dolorosa (translated from Latin as “The Way of Sorrow”) is the famous path along which Jesus Christ carried his instrument of execution. Nowadays Via Dolorosa is a famous route for Christian pilgrims from all over the world. Starting from the remains of Anthony’s fortress, the place of his condemnation, the path leads to the place of Christ’s crucifixion on the hill of Golgotha. It is an emotionally difficult path, although its length is only about 500 meters.

   Do not ignore such tourist routes as: Garden of Gethsemane, Jerusalem Zoo, and the Turkish Wall of Suleiman the Magnificent. You will be advised about all the sights of Jerusalem at the DVASH TOURS travel agency.
