Trip to Jerusalem

Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the world and considered as a holy city by Abrahamic religions namely Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Last Saturday (06/13), we visited the Old City in Jerusalem.

We started the trip at the Garden Tomb, the protestant version of where Jesus was supposedly buried.

Then we walked through the market to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

People waited in line to see the Tomb of Jesus.

We walked through the market again and arrived at the Western Wall. People can write notes and put them into the crevices of the wall. (Tip: People are not allowed to take photos on Saturdays).

Our next stop was the tomb of the Virgin Mary.

Near the Tomb of the Virgin Mary is the Church of All Nations, which is peaceful and beautiful.
