Virtual Tour: Jerusalem’s multifaceted holiness
Much has been written on Jerusalem through the ages, elaborating on how the fact that it is holy to the three monotheistic religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam – has shaped its landscape. In the tour we will see this landscape from unique vantage points using cutting-edge technology. We will start with the topography of the city that governed its development over years.
We will hover above the Old City as if we were in a transparent aircraft and from time to time delve down and take a look into the buildings.
We will start with the Tower of David Museum of the history of Jerusalem. The museum, located in an ancient citadel, encapsulates all the historical periods within the fortress’ walls. We will travel up the Mount of Olives to take in a breath-taking view over Temple Mount. From here we will be able to envisage the week that changed the world – the last week that Jesus walked upon this earth. Here we will see why Jerusalem is holy to Islam and understand what will happen here on Yawm ad-Din – the Day of Judgement. Our next view will take us around the walls of the Old City. We will learn why the preservation of this ancient city owes so much to the British Mandate over the area in the 20th Century. All of this will be accompanied with the fascinating stories of the city.
Finally we will get a glimpse into the future of Jerusalem where high-tech industry is making sure that history will be written here also in the centuries to come.
