"Mount of Olives" Mount of Olives Tip by Sharon

Mount of Olives, Jerusalem: 49 reviews and 129 photos

  Mount of Olives
by Sharon

According to the tradition about 2000 years ago, Jesus was standing on this hillside overlooking the Old City and was making prophesies that would change the world. However, according to the Jewish tradition, the Messiah will come (give me a break !)through the Golden Gate (or in its other name - Gate of Mercy) of the Old City and bring the resurrection of the dead in the cemetery on the Mount...
Jewish people from around the world pays thousands of Dollars just for being burried in this place and i guess you can guess now why !
