Are you looking for what to do in Jerusalem?
PLACES TO SEE
Jerusalem is an amalgamation of history, mythology, philosophy and spirituality and spending around 3 days in the city of Bible will justify just why it shines on the world map. Start with a walk around the Old City and see how the three religions influenced not just Jerusalem but Israel too. According to the ‘Book of Acts’, Jerusalem is where the first Christian Church was established!
The prayers said at the Western wall in the Jewish Quarter, held on pieces of papers covering the cracks of the wall, vouch for the strong belief of anyone who visits.
Touch the stone where Jesus was laid down after being crucified, see the grave of Mary near the Mount Olives, pay your respects at the Al-Aqsa Mosque where Prophet Mohammad is believed to ascend to heaven, visit the St. James Monastery at the Armenian quarters and see the Jewish Quarter that holds ancient masterpieces such as the Cardo (dating back to 700 BC) and Burnt House (dating back to 70 AD).
The beauty of Jerusalem’s flavors can be tasted fresh in its Souks and its inspiring art ceramics, woolen carpets, jewelry and other gift items are hard to resist shopping for.
