Description

This photo was taken from the southeast end of the Eastern Wall looking towards Mount of Olives. The hill is located on the eastern side of Kidron creek and overlooks the old city of Jerusalem. This hill is considered holy ground due to the fact that Jesus was believed to have many experiences there. Also, many churches and significant biblical places such as the tomb of Mary lay on this ground.
