View from Mount of Olives across Jewish cemetary and Kidron Valley
The view of the Old City from the Mount of Olives is one of the best in Jerusalem to get the full panorama of the sites.
Garden of Gethsemane
Following the Last Supper, Jesus withdrew to the Garden of Gethsemane with his disciples to pray. It was here that he was betrayed by Judas Iscariot with a kiss. The garden itself is approximately 2000 years old, filled with olive trees and is the largest site that has been identified as Gethsemane.
Temple Mount, Kidron Valley and Mount of Olives
An overview of the Old City and Temple Mount, sloping down into the Kidron Valley and up again to the Mount of Olives. Temple Mount is built on Mount Moriah, where Abraham would have sacrificed Isaac, subsequently the site of the First and Second Temples, and now containing the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque.
Jesus Christ made his triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday from the Mount of Olives, at whose base lies the Garden of Gethsemane. Ancient Jewish and Muslim cemetaries can be seen on the right-hand side of the picture.
Absalom's tomb in the Kidron Valley just outside the Old City walls
Within the Kidron Valley is the traditional tomb of Absalom, the Third son of King David. Amnon, David's oldest son, is killed by Absalom for raping his sister, Tamar. Absalom then has himself declared king in Hebron. He attacks his father, but is defeated and, against David's command, is killed by Joab.
David laments "O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! Would that I had died instead of you, O Absalom, my son, my son!" The tomb is described as a place of prayer for all parents whose children have 'gone astray'.
Al Aqsa Mosque and Mount of Olives

One of the two valleys that lie just outside the city walls of Jerusalem, an ancient burial place. There are very old Jewish and Muslim cemetaries nearby, and a few Orthodox graves in the valley itself.
This is the valley where the blood from the sacrifices of the First and Second Temples was piped to.
Dome of the Rock
View of the exterior of the Dome of the Rock, with the iconic gold dome, the exterior walls decorated with mosaics, tiles and stained glass with quotations from the Qur'an.
The pillars in the foreground are traditionally where scales will be hung on Judgement Day to weigh the souls of mankind. Inside the Dome is the rock from which Muhammad ascended to Heaven, during his night journey to Jerusalem.
One of Jerusalem's myriad markets, bustling with smells and noise and colourful wares. Each of the Quarters of the Old City has a distinctive atmosphere in its markets.
Church of the Holy Sepulchre interior
Built upon the highest point in the Old City, there was originally a Roman temple dedicated to Venus on the hill. When the Emperor Constantine's mother Helena discovered the tomb of Jesus on the site, believed by many to be Golgotha, a Church was built there in the 4th Century.
Today the church is a snapshot of the diversity of the Christian Church, with areas allocated to many different denominations. The present church was built in the 12th century by the Crusaders.
The most important site in the world for Jews, the 15 metre high (50ft) walls are the only remaining stone blocks still standing from the Second Temple. Symbolically, it has remained for 2000 years following the Roman sacking of the city, and has inspired prayers and reverance.
It is sometimes known as the Wailing Wall because Jews gathered there to show their sadness at the ruin of the Temple.

Outside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre
In 2007 the Daily Service made a week-long Three Faiths Pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Six pilgrims from the UK - two from each Abrahamic faith - visited the holy sites and shared insights from their scriptures.
