Why Jerusalem?

Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Israel.

But Jerusalem is more than that, for the Jews, Jerusalem has always been "The Holy City". And also Christians and Muslims has reverenced this city for centuries.

It is easy to understand why Jerusalem has such an important impact, both locally and internationally.

So much to see

Some of the most famous places to visit are:

Dome of the Rock at the Temple Mount, the third holiest Muslim site.

Western Wall the most sacred Jewish site in the world.

The holiest Christian site, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre where is supposed it took place here Jesus' s crucifixion, burial and resurrection.

And the Quaters

Walking around the streets of the Old City you will not see any distinct separation between the four parts, you will only realise that you have past to the other sector as for the cultural, architectural, clothing?s difference.

The Old part of the city is divided in four quarters

Jewish Quarter

Christian Quarter

Muslim Quarter

Armenian Quarter

    Nice to see Jerusalem through your eyes! Za'atar is a mixture of hyssop, ground sesame seeds and salt.
