    This is a must if you come visit OldTown Jerusalem. And along with this, you should definitely visit the Temple Mount (when it's open)! I visited both along with the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, so what is most special to Jews, Muslims & Christians for the full experience of Old Town Jerusalem!

    And what was most special of all, is that My Special Jewish Friend in My Holy Mission Global sensed when I prayed for him at the Western Wall! Simply Amazing! It definitely is powerful! xo~A +Q-S/

    The Church is the shelter to Christ's crucifixion and burial sites. It protects the Golgotha rock where Jesus was nailed to his cross, died and also the place where he was buried before resuscitating. It has a very spiritual meaning to Christians, and the Middle Eastern vibe of the decorum makes it all the more so special. However, the way the place is administrated (you can read about it in any guidebook) means it's almost dereclit in places. It can also be very crowded and queues to visit the Tomb of Jesus can strech over an hour. Do not hesitate to come back at different hours of the day as the light can change the atmosphere quite drastically.

    This just has to be done by foot, carrying a cross from the very Garden of Gethsemane to Calvary and the Tomb of the Holy Sepulchre! This is the single most important part of our pilgrimmage journey!

    Unlike the Arab quarter, there isn't as much shopping but it can be just as confusing to walk around. Although, there are some shops this is more residential than the Arab or Armenian quarters. There are some very interesting old market streets that have been uncovered and on display here.

    We stopped here as part of an Israel tour. It is fun to walk through. Stop at the Blue and White Gallery, the prints are very creative and not expensive. The owner is a great guy.

    This is one of the main entrances to the old city and the Arab shuk. You may be called to buy vendors. If you are looking for souvenirs, you can find them here but be aware that the market continues if you keep walking straight. There are some historical areas here and the entrance to the Ramparts Walk. On the outside of the gate, down the steps, is the Mamilla Mall, also a great, shopping area with fancier type stores and restaurants.

    Jerusalem has many areas that are special, Ein Kerem is one of them, like a rural area in the midst of the city, but with attractions that need to be visited.
    It is an area very much related to Christianity, the site of the birth of John the Baptist, the church of the Visitation, the Church of St John, the well of Myriam, and also good restaurants, a place that is a must visit in Jerusalem

    The Damascus Gate is one of the original eight gates leading into Jerusalem's walled Old City, now within the Muslim Quarter district. Also known as the Shechem Gate (or Nablus Gate), there is a flurry of activity from the foot traffic through the gate, as well as the merchants selling their wares. We accessed the Garden Tomb and Golgotha located nearby, outside the wall, through the Damascus Gate. The imposing Damascus Gate and wall surrounding Jerusalem's Old City are quite impressive from the exterior stairs, which lead up to the streets of Jerusalem.

    Buried in a christian cemetery so look for the grave with all the rocks as Jewish tradition is to leave one. There is more to see than just his grave. I liked the memorial as well.

    We reached Mt. Zion on the 4th day of our pilgrimage. There's an ambiguity on the historical significance of this sacred hills as far Judaism and Christianity are concerned. But fact is, it played a crucial role in shaping the final days of Christ even His mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary.

    On a stunning, late winter Saturday morning we went to see this little jewelry box of a Russian Orthodox church, which was begun in 1905 by the Czar's sister-in-law, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria, but left without a roof by the Communist Revolution and only completed in 2005, after the fall of Communism.

    Once called Moskovia by Arab locals, today 5 golden onion domes, one of which is a bell tower, beckon visitors to explore this off-the-beaten- track convent compound.

    Closed Sundays and holidays, best to go by car on Saturdays because there is no traffic nor charge for parking in Hadassah Hospital complex, which you have to enter to get to the church.
    Taking public transportation would require a very long hike through hospital med school residences just to get to the gate of the convent.

    Hours 10;00-13:00 and 15:30-18:00. Leave time to stroll around the quiet grounds as well as go into the church.
