Jerusalem The Western Wall
Photograph - Photography
The Western Wall, sometimes also called the Wailing Wall or the Kotel is located in the old City of Jerusalem at the foot of the western side of the Temple Mount.
It is a remnant of the ancient wall that surrounded the Jewish Temples courtyard. The Western Wall, to which Jews everywhere turn in prayer, reminds everyone the Jewish chain of generations that began in Jerusalem, on Mount Moriah, as known as Temple Mount.
Jerusalem is the holiest city in Jewish tradition and according to the Hebrew bible, king David of Israel first established it as its capital. His son, king Solomon, commissioned the building of the first temple in the city.
In the Christian tradition, Jerusalem has been a holy city since according to the new testament, Jesus was crucified there.
During its long history, Jerusalem has been destroyed twice, besieged 23 times, attacked 52 times, and captured and recaptured 44 times.
Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the world. It is located in the Judean mountains, between the Mediterranean sea and the northern edge of the dead sea. It is the largest city in Israel in both population and area.
