_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.
法国ribEvery day, people from different parts of the city, from all over the world to the cry wall ⋯ This is the holy place of the world's Jews (the nearest place to the second temple, the west wall) pouring out the suffering of displacement ⋯
法国ribThis is the place where Jesus died and was raised. It is the holy place of Christianity. An interesting tradition, the twelfth century rulers of the time, stipulated that the keys to the church of the Holy Tomb were kept by a Muslim family, so that you would not all argue. Now every night, a Muslim climbs a ladder to lock the door.

From Bible times to today, tombs from 4000 years ago coexist with tombs today. There are an estimated 150,000 tombs on the mountain, including Including Zechariah (the prophet who prophesied here) and many Jewish rabbis from the 15th to the 20th century.

From the First Middle East War in 1948 to the Six-Day War in 1967, the Mount of Olives was occupied by Jordanians and the Mount of Olives was severely damaged. Jordanians used tombstones from the cemetery to build roads and military toilets. Many of the tombstones are thousands of years old. history. After the Six-Day War, the Israelis did their best to transport the surviving tombstones back to the mountain. The Mount of Olives is also where Jesus used to preach.

嘎兰If you want to learn more about the past and present of Israel, it is recommended to go to the Israel Museum first, set aside half a day or even a day, and then visit the ancient city, it can be said that it is a clear memory. I happened to visit the museum with a class of military academy students, and there was a little surging in my heart~

One of the most iconic images of the Middle East is undoubtedly the Dome of the Rock shimmering in the setting sun of Jerusalem. Sitting atop the Haram al-Sharif, the highest point in old Jerusalem, the Dome of the Rock’s golden-color Dome and Turkish Faience tiles dominates the cityscape of Old Jerusalem and in the 7th century served as a testament to the power of the new faith of Islam.
The Dome of the Rock is one of the earliest surviving buildings from the Islamic world. This remarkable building is not a mosque, as is commonly assumed and scholars still debate its original function and meaning.
Undoubtedly the experienced here is so powerful and can’t be measured as you feel the good energies after you left this place. In my own opinion this is really a must visit place when you’re in Israel.
I don’t think there’s a city in the world that has more history and stories than Jerusalem. Take at least one day to soak up this city with it’s four quarters. See the the Western Wall, Dome of the Rock and Church of the Holy Sepulchre where Jesus is said to be buried.

One of the most sacred places in the world 🕌 - Dome of the Rock, Jerusalem.
You tiptoe into one of the most sacred places in the world.
This is where the great monotheistic religions believe the world originated.
A place almost inaccessible to tourists.
And so in an early December sunrise we woke up as soon as possible to be able to visit this incredible wonder.
A mosque (the oldest in the world) built on the remains of the Temple of Solomon, the most sacred place of the Jewish religion (the Wailing Wall is all that remains).
Jerusalem is layers and layers of stories and this is the perfect example.
Entering such a place is really intense.
The Dome of the Rock stands out in the Jerusalem skyline with its 30kg of authentic gold covering it.
An unmissable stop, a mix of emotions and at the same time such beauty that it cannot take your eyes off.
Have you ever been there?
Practical advice: access is allowed in the summer months from Sunday to Thursday from 7.30 to 11 and from 13.30 to 14.30.
During the winter months: from 7.30 to 10.30 and from 12.30 to 13.30.
Recommended women's clothing: legs and arms well covered. No bare feet.
