Jerusalem of Gold


Traditionally, JERUSALEM’s history spans over 4000 years… but it’s fame really began when David conquered it, making it his capital.

It gathered momentum when his son, Solomon, built the first temple on Mt. Moriah (traditional location where Abraham was meant to sacrifice Isaac).

Since then it has become the focal point of monotheistic religions throughout the world and the heart and soul of the Jewish faith.





Jerusalem of Gold – From atop the Mt. of Olives, with the panorama of Jerusalem at your fingertips, an overview of the geography, the biblical and political situation, bring insight into the temperament of the times past and present.
