Jerusalem is a fascinating city and a highlight of any visit to Israel.
Steeped in religion, fiercely disputed and rich in history; Jerusalem is one of the oldest continually occupied cities in the world. Sacred to the three largest monotheistic faiths, the city was founded almost 7,000 years ago.
Claimed as capital by both Israelis and Palestinians alike, Jerusalem's in-limbo status doesn't prevent it being one of the greatest sites of pilgrimage in the world. Religious wonders pack its streets and the faithful come in droves to pay their respects.
