About Jerusalem

Located on a plateau in the Judean Mountains, Jerusalem is the oldest city in the Middle East and on Earth, located between the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea. Its history dates back to the 18th-19th century. In fact,  and later, the city of Jerusalem was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site List in 1981. Jerusalem is the spiritual confluence of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism, a holy place attracting over one-third of the world’s population. The city has also been a common site of controversy between Israel and Palestine, both claiming the holy city as their capital. The Walls of Jerusalem surrounding the old city is quite a significant structure and has stood steadfast defending the city since ancient times. The walls stretch a total length of 4018 meters, rises to a height of 12 meters, and has an average thickness of 2.5 meters. There are thirty-four watchtowers and seven main gates opened for traffic. The city has stood strong in the face of extreme adversities and had been a witness to many power struggles over the years.
