Holy Sites in Jerusalem
It is impossible to overstate the religious importance of this ancient city. One of the oldest cities in the world, Jerusalem is a sacred place for all three major Abrahamic religions. Jerusalem has been sacred to Judaism since King David proclaimed it his capital. For Christians, Jerusalem features prominently in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. For Sunni Muslims, Jerusalem is the third holiest city, as it is where Mohammad ascended to Heaven.
