Church of the Holy Sepulcher
There is an area where the crucifix was placed. There was a hole that you could crawl through to touch and pray on the actual rock that the crucifix was placed in. The line was enormous so I didn't go but EW went to say his prayers. Whatever, I can express my own beliefs if I want to. I have a very scientific mind and would like to know where exactly the actual dead body is. It would be a historical find. And if stupid religious people are hiding it somewhere just for the sake of people believing that he did rise from the dead, then that is the stupidest thing EVER.
Mount of Olives
We went to the Mount of Olives and got panoramic view of Jerusalem. I recommend to go to Mount of Olives in the morning as you won't be facing against the direct sunlight. It will be difficult to get the panoramic pictures of Jerusalem in the evening from Mount of Olives. Surprisingly, Mount of Olives comes under Palestine which is considered to be an occupied territory. We went to the Old City of Jerusalem and went to the Western Wall. Western Wall is the holiest site in Judaism. The wall has been a site for Jewish prayer and pilgrimage for centuries. It was time for holy site of Christianity. We went to see Church of the Holy Sepulchre. It is the same place where Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected. In the evening, I went for a stroll on the Bridge of Strings which looked most beautiful under the lightings.I genuinely feel that 1 day was not sufficient for Jerusalem. However, due to time constraints I had to manage it somehow.
We reached Jerusalem at 15:00 hours. Jerusalem is known as a holy city in the world. It is the birthplace of three different religions (Judaism, Islam, Christianity) in the world. Jerusalem has been sacred to Judaism for roughly 3000 years, to Christianity for around 2000 years, and to Islam for approximately 1400 years. The 2000 Statistical Yearbook of Jerusalem lists 1204 synagogues, 158 churches, and 73 mosques within the city. Israel is ancient yet among the most developed country in the world.
