Jerusalem as an option of Religious Tourism

Who does not know this city, the city of the prophets of the three religions in the world, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Has a variety of buildings that received the title of saint, Jerusalem is the home of the Lord, a place of worship of those religions.

Jerusalem, in itself already contains a peace, what a name. Travelers visiting this city with diverse objectives, although the need for pilgrimage an important place.

Where was about to step foot?

The town is located on the hilltops of Judea, many times demolished and then rebuilt. Tower of David, which is also called the Jaffa Gate, on the western wall of the Old City. In this place of that times, in 1187, Sultan Saladin with his troops get ready before taking the city.

From the top of the Mount Olives, east of the Old City, separated Kidron Valley, the Gate of Mercy looks so majestic, believed to be the coming of the Supreme Court in the end of times.

Down the narrow cobblestone streets of the Old City, left-right high walls with souvenir shops, the cars and street motorcycles, Via Dolorosa, the Way of Suffering, 2,000 years ago, Jesus walked carrying the cross to the hill of Golgotha.

Where else can travelers choose the goal while in the old city of Jerusalem that was founded around 1,800 BC? The yellow light of Dome of the Rock, as well as other religious buildings, the Church of the Tomb of Christ, the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Wailing Wall, and many shrines and other sacred.

Whatever it is, Jerusalem remains a special religious tourist destination in the heart of the tourists, believed to be an important place on earth to get a response from God.

A beautiful day to travel in an old city of Jerusalem. Hopefully peace are there.
