  • Jerusalem's landmarks are to be found mostly in and around the Old City. On the Temple Mount itself are the Moslem symbols of Jerusalem, Al Aqsa and the golden Dome of the Rock. Close by, is the Western Wall that's a landmark for Jews all over the world. A few hundred meters to the west in the Christian Quarter are the double grey domes of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, revered by many Christians as the place of the crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Next on our list of landmarks is the Tower of David with its distinctive 15th century tower that's become a symbol of Jerusalem, and close by on Mt Zion is the odd-shaped grey roof of the 19th century Church of Dormition, just outside the walls of the Old City. In the western part of town one landmark stands out in the ultra-orthodox northern neighborhoods and that's the gigantic Belz Synagogue built in the 1990s. A very different landmark to the south of the Old City in the Arnona residential area is the Haas Promenade--known by its Hebrew name, the tayelet--a lovely half-mile long promenade with stupendous views of the rest of the city laid out below.
