    Here we find millenary olive trees.
    This garden is important for Christian believers, because here our Lord Jesus Christ rested and prayed, before being arrested by the guards.

    The Garden Tomb is believed to be the site of the burial of Jesus. The location is related to Jerusalem. The site of the Garden Tomb is supported by evangelical Christians, and Mormons. Orthodox Christians support the Holy Sepulcher as the site of Christ's. resurrection. The Garden Tomb is interesting.

    King Herod's Palace is a very beautiful historical place, east of Bethlehem, a place worth visiting. There is an entry ticket of 29 shekels per person.

    The Haas promenade offers a sweeping view of Jerusalem. If you’re after a daylight view, try to go on a clear, sunny day. We visited around noon, and with the sun to our back, the contrast of blue sky against the white buildings was spectacular! A plaque points out the major landmarks. The old and the new, with several thousand years of history in between – stretched out in front of you!

    We found this place by luck. It is a natural untouched beach and pristine Dead Sea water. There are layers of mud covering the beach and you could cover your body with it, instead of using those mud packs from the shop.

    The water in the sea is much less salty than in the resorts, where the water is much thicker. It is also much cooler.

    The beaches on this side are wild and very stretched so you barely see anyone. So we bumped into a few nude people, who were having a mud treatment and swimming in the sea. So if this is your thing, you might consider coming here for that.

    On the caution side, there is a layer of self formed salt crystals in the mud in the sea, so be careful when you walk on the beach or in the water. After 5-10m from the coast line, the mud changes to sand.

    Lastly, the beach that I am referring to is located on the road from Jerusalem to the Dead Sea resorts, right after the police block. You will see a parking space on the right hand side.

    Please take note that there is quick sand in the area approximately 5 km from my reference point, so don't go too far.

    Enjoy it!

    The Kidron Valley divides the Mount of Olives from the Old City of Jerusalem. The Kidron Valley is a buffer between the Mount of Olives and the Temple Mount. The walls of the Temple Mount define the boundaries of the Old City. The Temple Mount is technically in the Muslim Quarter. The historic Mount of Olives Jewish Cemetery adjoins the KIdron Valley. You can get a marvelous view of the Old City at sunset across the Kidron Valley.

    The water goes on every hour for 30 minutes and it was a blast for my child, especially on a hot day. Bring a swim suit!

    Mount Zion is a hill just outside of the walls of the Old City. Mount Zion has an ancient history, it is mentioned several times in the Hebrew Bible as part of the City of David. It believed that at the End of Days the Messiah will enter from Mount Zion, through the Zion Gate. Many interesting features are connected to Mount Zion and the Zion Gate, including King David's Tomb and the Cenacle, also known as the Upper Room, site of the Last Supper. The terminology "Zionist" is derived from Mount Zion.

    "I VISITED THIS PLACE"...
    .... with four boys ages 5 to 14. It was hot and sunny- we started on the surround and circle Mount Strong hike, which is on a wide jeep road but it has total sun exposure. We didn't have the time nor supplies (and the boys didn't have the interest nor resilience) to complete the loop of more than two hours, so we did enjoy our adventure, but we turned back.... full disclosure- the same thing happened two other times in the past year- failed attempts with young charges.

    ADVICES
    This is certainly a well-organized and well equipped and famous nature reserve. As such, it is a good holiday spot and a good place for hiking in nature, but not far from the city of Jerusalem. I certainly endorse and recommend a visit to here.

    Interesting cave or former quarry of stone for the rest of the Old City in Herodian times, due to Covid 19, sometimes it maybe closed and they are also doing some restorations, it is a huge site, and in the past they did concerts there

    There is probably no better relaxation from the city's hustle and bustle than going to a park in the heart of the city. The Jerusalem Botanica Garden is an oasis of peace and tranquility, featuring over 6000 species of trees, plants, shrubs from the Middle East to Europe, arranged along winding trails and resting points to admire the scenery. Very well signed as well, taking the visitor around circular paths, including a lovely greenhouse that exhibits desert vegetation. A real pleasure for individuals and families alike. A tip for visitors arriving by cab. Make sure that you have arranged a pick-up back, or have a Get Taxi application on your phone, as the entrance is pretty distant from the main road. The admission fee for senior citizens is INS 25, ( 40 for adults).
