Journey to Jerusalem, the House of Peace

Jerusalem, the holy city known to many religions, means "House of Peace". It is the capital of Israel and the largest and most populous city of the state of Israel. The Old City of Jerusalem, the oldest, was named a World Heritage Site in 1981 by UNESCO.

Every year thousands of people travel to "Holy Land" for first person in a kind of pilgrimage places that the Bible mentions especially associated with the life of Jesus Christ. Although we can imagine by the bad news coming out of the area, the city is quite safe for tourists now.

Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the world. Destroyed and rebuilt several times again, Jerusalem seems an eternal city. Formerly, he was the center of the Judeo-Christian religion, until the Romans under General Titus, son of Emperor Vespasian, destroyed it in 70 CE, and plundered their temple, taking inside any object of value. Undoubtedly, the Jerusalem now has nothing to do with the past Jerusalem, supported by strong beliefs in One God who was worshiped exclusively.
