Atmospere in Jerusalem
Over the past six thousand years, the city of Jerusalem has fallen and risen many times anew. When people first settled around the hills of Gihon Spring, the city had already existed for centuries as a hilltop agricultural city, well within the realm of the Egyptian empire. After a devastating invasion by the Philistines about thirty-five hundred years ago, the small kingdom of Judea was formed by King David. While the region has grown, changed and reinvented itself countless times, Jerusalem remains a revered site for many and a pilgrimage destination for several faiths.
Experience Cultural Immersion
Today, Jerusalem exists as a diverse center of multi-theistic worship for Judaism, Christianity and Islam. For many visitors, seeing the sites that are central to their faith is an important pilgrimage. Located throughout the historic city are sacred places such as the Temple Mount, The Western (Wailing) Wall and the Church Of The Holy Sepulchre. The ancient beauty and timeless preservation of these important sites of devotion are the reason so many come to the city to stay, visit and experience the rich culture of Jerusalem, which means the City of Peace.
