"The Temple Mount in the old city of Jerusalem has been the focus of world attention these days. It is one of the most difficult problems in the world, the most difficult and complex. Jews and Muslims regard this as a holy place, your things are built on me, and one more person to tear down your things, later, my temple is built here again ⋯, but ultimately, it is to rely on strength to speak, a modern word is, standing in the position of strength to speak, Israelis are in the ascendant. The Temple Mount currently managed by Jordanians. Since the Third Middle East War, it has actually been in the old city of Jerusalem occupied by Israel. According to the agreement, the Temple Mount is managed by Jordanians. The security of the Temple Mount is responsible for by Israeli military and police ⋯ We are as tourists. Only the mounted passageway on the western wall can be entered in a fixed period of time. All the entrances are guarded by Israel's police and army. In addition to the military and police access to the Temple Mountain area, other Jews can not enter, so they cry every day in the lower wall of the displaced pain [interest] OK [view] OK [price/performance] no money"

The famous Schindler’s Tomb and the last dining room are here, as well as the Dormition of the Virgin. The place is not very big. It’s about walking and walking slowly for an hour or two."

"The Chicken Ming Church on Mount Zion, also known as "Peter Chicken Ming Church", is another famous church in Jerusalem. The name here comes from a story recorded in the Bible: When Roman soldiers came to arrest Jesus, Peter denied his relationship with Jesus three times. Due to the historical background and turbulence of Jerusalem itself, the Jiming Hall has undergone several reconstructions. However, part of the mountain road behind Jiming Hall is circled. It can be seen that the mountain road has been very dilapidated due to the passage of time. However, according to research, it was after the Last Supper. Jesus once walked along this road to Tin An Shan prayed to God for his courage."

"The entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem, the well-known Damascus Gate, dates back to the second century, the Roman City era. The gates at that time were three times the current ones, like the Arc de Triomphe, and there was no continuous wall. Later, when it rebuilt the city wall, it became the guard room. What is impressive is that the remains of the Roman gate still exist, including the arch hole engraved with legal provisions made by colonial rulers. Damascus Gate, also known as Shechem Gate or Nablus Gate, is a gate on the north side of the Old City of Jerusalem. The city gate was built in 1542 by Suleiman the Great of the Ottoman Empire. The gate has two towers. The original city gate was built during the Second Temple period. During Hadrian's period in the 2nd century AD, the Romans built a new gate. In front of the city gate stands a Roman Victory Column, from which the Arabic name "Pillar Gate" of Damascus Gate gets its name. During the British Mandate, the Roman gate was excavated, but the Victory Column was not found. During the Crusades, this was the north gate of the city."
