Over the past thousands of years, this city has seen some of the most defining moments in human history. It is where Jesus was crucified, Solomon built his temple, and Mohammed made his final pilgrimage.
A site of immense religious significance for both Judaism, as a cemetery, and Christianity, as the location of Christ's ascension to heaven, Jerusalem's Mount of Olives was named for the crop that grew over its slopes.
This prominent hill in the Old City of Jerusalem is the location of the Dome of the Rock. In ancient times, it was home to Solomon's Temple and Herodian walls.
This olive garden at the base of the Mount of Olives is believed to be the location where Jesus wept, prayed, and was arrested the night before His crucifixion. It is now a popular pilgrimage destination.
This small section of the ancient wall of Jerusalem is one of the city's most popular spots for Jewish prayer. In ancient times, it was built to protect the second major temple that was constructed on the Temple Mount.
As one of the four quarters of Jerusalem, the Armenian Quarter contains a great deal of historical buildings and monuments. It was established in the 4th century after the Armenian diaspora.
This quarter of Jerusalem was centered around the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The quarter is shared equally by Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodox, and Armenian Christians alike.
In ancient Roman cities, the Cardo was the main central street. The one in Jerusalem was built after most of the city was destroyed due to a Jewish rebellion in the 130s AD.
This church within the Christian Quarter of Old Jerusalem was built in 335 on the site believed to be the location of Jesus' crucifixion and near his tomb.
Located in the southeastern section of the Old City of Jerusalem, this quarter is filled with tight alleyways and numerous yeshivas and synagogues. It is home to about 2,000 residents.
