In the map of Jerusalem above you can see the following sites (from left to right):

  • The Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Sepulcher means a burial vault, or simply put it is a room with a grave. It is believed by Christians that Jesus was buried in this place.
  • The Via Dolorosa, the last road Jesus walked, carrying the cross.
  • The Jewish Quarter, where you can find the Burnt House and the Cardo.
  • The Western Wall, also known as the Wailing Wall or the Kotel (a Hebrew word meaning simply "the wall"). It is believed to be the only remains of the temple originally built by King Solomon. The wall is widely regarded as the holiest place in Judaism.
  • The Dome of the Rock mosque, the oldest Islamic building in the world (completed in 691).
  • The Mount of Olives, which is actually a very good starting point for your Jerusalem tour. It gives you the perfect view of the old city. The mount is located east of the old city. You will also see Dominus Flevit and a few other churches located nearby here.

If you would like to see the topography and geography of Jerusalem, just click on the Ter button (stands for terrain). You can also use the Sat button (stands for satellite) to see the land from above - the greenery as well as man-made elements.

Where is Jerusalem located within Israel as a whole or even in the Middle East region? Use the zoom feature above to zoom out and you will see that too.


Ancient Jerusalem Maps

Have you ever had the opportunity to see some ancient maps (i.e. the hand-drawn kind - before Google and GPS)??? Whether you have or have not, if you like history and historical documents you may find Jerusalem and some of its old maps verrrry interesting. I recently found a number of them on a great art website called Ric's Art.com. Here are some of the awesome maps they have there:

1660s Jerusalem

You can order reproductions of any of the above maps from Ric'sArt.com, it can make for some pretty cool wall art in your home or office.
