Jerusalem Holidays Overview


Jerusalem

Jerusalem is Israel's capital and a religiously significant city. The City of Gold is one of the world's oldest cities and a fascinating place where the old and new collide. Here there are old neighbourhoods located next to luxurious towers and apartments.

Jerusalem's Old City is a World Heritage Site along with the walls surrounding it. This ancient city is breathtaking and has the holy sites for Muslims, Christians and Jews. West Jerusalem is the city's commercial heart and its Jewish part.

West Jerusalem is a German colony with many good restaurants and cafes. Ein Karem is a secluded neighbourhood surrounded by beautiful hills, several galleries, beautiful churches and expensive homes.

Jerusalem is a very important city for three major religions. Here you'll find the Church of Holy Sepulchre located in close proximity to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Western Wall. Throughout the city are ancient streets and narrow alleys that offer insight into what makes this city so historically and religiously important.

Jerusalem is also home to several cultural and artistic venues. One of the top attractions in the city is the Israel Museum spread over 20 acres and comprising several buildings with European and Israeli art, archaeological findings and much more. The Shrine of the Book in the museum is where the Dead Sea Scrolls are housed.

Israel's main Holocaust museum is located on the Mount of Remembrance. The Jerusalem Biblical Zoo remains the top attraction in the city for Israelis while Yad Vashem has the largest library on Holocaust in the world.

Jerusalem holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Masada

www.parks.org.il
What is it? Situated in the Judean Desert and overlooking the Dead Sea is one of Israel's most popular tourist attractions, the mountaintop fortress of Masada (sometimes spelled Massada). This enduring symbol of Jewish history is the site of the heroic defiance by 967 Jewish Zealots who rose against the Roman Empire in 66 AD and took their own lives when defeat seemed inevitable. A cable car ride or hike up the Snake Path takes one to the top where breathtaking views can be enjoyed over the Dead Sea and the surrounding desert. The Masada Sound and Light Show recounts this dramatic history with special pyrotechnic effects, and takes place in a natural amphitheatre on the west side of the mountain reachable only from Arad. Hours of Operation: Daily 8am to 5pm (until 4pm from October to March), first cable car at 8am Phone:(07) 658 4207/8

 

 

2. Church of the Holy Sepulchre
Via Dolorosa, Old City
What is it? The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is the holiest Christian site in Jerusalem, the site of Jesus' crucifixion, burial and resurrection. First constructed in 335 by Emperor Constantine, persistent damage has been inflicted on the structure over the centuries and subsequent repair work has been undertaken by the religious communities that administer it. The Church contains the Chapel of Golgotha and three Stations of the Cross where Jesus was crucified, and the Sepulchre itself marks the place of his burial and resurrection. Hours of Operation: Daily 5am to 9pm (April to September) and 4am to 7pm (October to March) Phone:(02) 627 3314

 

 

3. Temple Mount (Al-Haram al-Sharif)
Temple Mount, Old City
What is it? Temple Mount, known by some as Mount Moriah, is a site of tremendous religious importance to Muslims, Jews and Christians alike. It is one of Jerusalem's most famous landmarks and can be found within the walled section of the Old City. The glinting golden dome of the Dome of the Rock rises impressively from Jerusalem's skyline and has become the city's most distinguishable feature. Temple Mount is of Jewish and Christian historical importance on two accounts: the large rock is believed to be the place where Abraham offered his son Isaac up for sacrifice, and the First Temple is the place where the Ark of the Covenant was housed. Even though off limits to Jews today, it is still the focal point of Jewish life and Jews worldwide face the Temple Mount during prayer. For Muslims the same rock is the place from which Muhammad, in a dream, ascended to heaven. In commemoration the Dome of the Rock was built over the site in the 7th century. It is known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary or Al-Haram al-Sharif, and is one of the three most important sites in Islam. Also located on the Temple Mount are the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Islamic Museum, which houses a collection of Korans and Islamic relics. Hours of Operation: The site is temporarily closed to non-Muslims due to religious tensions. Otherwise Saturday to Thursday 7.30 to 11am and 1.30pm to 3pm (summer; 8am to 10.30am and 12.20pm to 2pm (winter) ; closed Fridays and prayer times Phone:(02) 628 3393
