yangniziNear the Dead Sea, there is a rocky mountain protruding from flat ground. The eastern cliff of this rocky mountain is about 450 meters high, from the top of the mountain to the shore of the Dead Sea; the western cliff is more than 100 meters high. The top of the rock is flat and roughly rhombus; it is about 600 meters long from north to south and more than 300 meters wide from east to west. On the top of the mountain, there are remnants of ancient palaces and castles. That is the ancient city of Masada, which has a history of more than 2,000 years.

渭南松赞干布The Wailing Wall, also known as the Western Wall, is located in the Old City of Jerusalem, Israel. It is a section of the retaining wall of the Second Temple in the ancient state of Israel. It is about 50 meters long and 20 meters high. It is made of large stones. The State of Israel was established two thousand years ago, and the capital was Jerusalem. It was driven out of their homes by foreigners twice in history, and their subjects were exodus. The Wailing Wall was the only site left by the State of Israel at that time. After the Byzantine period, Jews living around the world were allowed to return to Jerusalem and cry out at the Wailing Wall about their suffering in exile. In the middle of the Wailing Wall, the prayer area for men and women is separated by a screen, and there is an indoor scripture study room in the men's area to sit down and pray.

渭南松赞干布The ancient city of Petra was built around the Christian era and is located in a mountain canyon in the Ma'an province in southern Jordan. In 312 BC, the Nabataeans of the ancient Arab tribe occupied Petra and established the capital here and developed it into a spice trading center. In 106 AD, it was annexed by the Roman Empire and reduced to a province of the Roman Empire, which was later changed due to trade routes. , Began to decline. After the Islamic invasion in the 7th century, it disappeared from history until it was rediscovered by Swiss travellers in 1812. The ancient city was built on the gorge and excavated, including palaces, residences, baths, theaters, temples, tombs, etc. Many of the buildings were in Roman style, indicating that it was heavily influenced by Roman culture at that time.

_We***86The Old city is actually very compact with narrow alleys and contains small communities of different faiths. It's amazing to understand the building process and how there's entire layers of the previous settlements. An incredible experience and insight into the long history.
Church of the Holy Sepulchre

Church
strong钟A must-visit holy site. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is located in the Christian area of the Old City of Jerusalem. It is the place where Jesus died, was buried and resurrected, and the most important holy place in Christianity. The Holy Tomb is a stone cave, less than 2 meters wide. When Jesus was alive, he said that he would be resurrected on the third day after his death. At the beginning of the 4th century, the Empress Dowager Hirana, the mother of Constantine the Great, cruised to Jerusalem and ordered the construction of the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre at the site of Jesus’ death and burial. It is located on three holy sites: a rectangular colonnaded hall church (Matyrium) surrounding RockofCalvary's Triportico, a rotunda (Anastasis, meaning "resurrection"). In the center of the rotunda is the site of the cave where Jesus was buried. The rocks around the cave were all cut away, and the holy tomb was enclosed in a building called Edicule (meaning "little house"). Enter the church, turn right and go upstairs. It is Golgotha Hill where Jesus was nailed to the cross. There are two frescoes that show that Jesus was stripped of his clothes and then nailed to the cross. An altar, with a model of Jesus nailed to the cross at the top, and a statue of Jesus at the bottom, like a round marble hole in the front, which is said to be the hole where the cross was erected. Countless believers and tourists lined up to touch this hole. At the entrance of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, a piece of red marble is placed in the middle. It says that Jesus was nailed to the cross at 9 o'clock in the morning on Friday. At 3 o'clock in the afternoon, Jesus died after shouting loudly to God. At this time, the people believed that Jesus was really the Son of the Lord and the Messiah who came to save them. So people took him off the cross, put him on this marble, smeared anointing oil, and prepared for burial. The mural on the wall behind the marble bed depicts the scene in detail. There are many devout believers who put the tokens on the stone bed and wipe them. More people knelt for a long time and kissed this stone, which is said to be soaked in the blood of Jesus. To the left is the last stop of the sad road-the tomb of Jesus. Jesus was buried here and resurrected three days later. There is also the marble from the original tomb.
