Jerusalem: An Overview Recomended Products:

There is so much that one can say about Jerusalem but the most known fact about Jerusalem is that it is indeed the most holist city in the world.

Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and is located atop the Judean Mountains between the Mediterranean Sea and the Dead Sea. Jerusalem once consisted of just the Old City but now has outgrown the boundaries of the Old City and is sectioned off in four different areas known as: the Moslem Quarter, the Christian Quarter, the Jewish Quarter and the Armenian Quarter.

The city was first selected by King David over 3,000 years ago as the capital of Israel and to be the city of Jewish faith. The city was founded in 1004 B.C. Through Jerusalem's history a lot has happened, a lot of fighting, a lot of blood has been shed and a lot rebellions have taken place and still today there is much violence over religion that takes place within the city walls.

However, Jerusalem has some sites to see upon touring the city such as the Temple Mount that has been destroyed and rebuilt more than once. It is also full of synagogues, fortresses, mosques and Byzantine churches. It is also a city that has bared witness to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and the ascension of Mohammad into heaven.

Jerusalem's history has made a huge impact on religions around the world, mainly because within its city walls, it is home to three of the world's most recognized religions.
