    Mount Herzl is a national cemetery for the State of Israel. It is located near Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Memorial. Mount Herzl is the resting place of those who have fallen in the line of duty, including Jews, Druze, Muslims and Christians. Traditionally, Jewish burials take place within 24 hours of passing. No other memorial testifies to the determination of the Jewish people to defend their homeland.

    Standing at the Mount of Olives viewpoint, you cannot miss the Jewish Cemetery right below you. Graveyards present photographic opportunities because of the compositional lines, and this one is no different. The challenge is the lack of color. Be there early or late for shadows and better lighting. Watch for contrast issues and exposure problems just like sand at the beach. Pay attention to your histograms and you'll be OK. Finally, there is a walking route from the viewpoint to the Garden which will take you past the cemetery.

    According to Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions, David's Tomb is located on Mount Zion (in front of the Zion Gate), near the Dormition Abbey.
    In reality King David is buried in a large tomb, where are the remains of King Solomon.
    But here is a sacred place where the people is praying.

    Great water reservoir, huge even for today view, remained from ancient Jerusalem water delivery infrastructure. Two thousand years from Herod's time doesn't destroyed elements of water system. The water reservoir is open and could be clearly seen in the park (old cemetery) opposite Waldorf-Astoria hotel, the remains of water delivery tunnels could be seen in the Independence park ("Gan Ha-Azmaut"). Worth to see and imagine the scale of ancient structures.

    Save your steps to this place, I stay at the St. George Guesthouse and American Colony when I am in Jerusalem, and pass by this site almost daily. They are open only for special events, and no hours are listed. It is gated and surrounded by a large stone wall, which blocks you from seeing anything of the site. This is a shame because, I have found this site mentioned in so many travel guides and mentioned in archaeological magazines. Until they opt to open this up to the regular public, save your self and your feet and pass on this one.
