Jerusalem holidays

Jerusalem has maintained a central place in history for over 3,000 years. Situated in the Judean hills the strategic importance of the city has made it a much fought over prize. Israelites, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Christians, Muslims and Turks have all ruled the city at one time or another and have left their mark in the form of synagogues, churches, mosques, minarets and shrines. Despite having an area of only 1sq. km the number of sites within the city walls defies belief. With monuments sacred to all 3 major monotheistic religions, the city holds a significant status for Christians, Jews and Muslims alike.
